On the program

Don't miss a unique experience featuring performances by artists from Brazil and Quebec. The evening will feature two excerpts from Syntonie by Janie and Marcio, winners of the 2019 TV dance show RÉVOLUTION, as well as two shows combining live music and dance by Brazilian artists Flavia Tapias and Renato Vieira.

Janie & Marcio I Syntonie (5 min)

Janie Richard and Marcio Paulino present Syntonie, a piece that has already attracted more than 13,000 spectators at 47 performances across Quebec since 2021. This duo of independent dancers and producers, revealed by the program RÉVOLUTION in 2019, captivates a large national and international audience. Syntonie, a poetic and dynamic work, explores life and the search for balance through six tableaux evoking courage, the importance of others and the transcendence of limits, orchestrated by Frédéric Bélanger.

Flàvia Tàpias - Casa de Abelha (30 min)

Flávia Tápias, director and choreographer of Grupo Tápias and Espaço Tápias, as well as the Dança em Trânsito festival, has presented her work at several festivals. A collaborator with numerous choreographers, she has led a number of international artistic residencies. Inspired by the work of Mia Couto, she creates a singular atmosphere where a string scenography envelops the space, exploring the time of irreversible waiting. Her piece delves into the world of women, giving voice to existences that are often forgotten. The characters’ internal body space metamorphoses into a multitude of other spaces and dimensions, reflecting the ineluctable movements of life.

Renato Vieira - Suite Rock : “The Dark Side” (30 min)

This piece is part of the artistic journey of Renato Vieira, a Brazilian dancer and choreographer who has distinguished himself through a rich artistic career. As head of Renato Vieira Cia de Dança, he has created over 35 critically acclaimed works, including the opening choreography for the Pan-American Games. Suite Rock : “The Dark Side”, explores the connection between the physical world and the contemporary imagination. Celebrating the fusion of rock and classical music, bringing live music to life, this creation emerges from an urgent need to represent relationships, aspirations and desires in a post-confinement world.
