Transire – Mikaël Xystra Montminy/Compagnie WXWS | 12:00 pm | Place des festivals
Transire is a new take on Jean Cocteau’s play Le jeune homme et la mort choreographed by Roland Petit in 1946. Transire’s goal is to become a danced sequel of Cocteau’s story of a destitute young painter who commits suicide after breaking up with his lover, while infusing it with a contemporary flair. Transire is a poetic and physical metaphor for separation, failure, and grief – big and small- as a way to elevate and transform oneself.
