Following on from the RESET duo, presented at Festival Quartiers Danses in 2021 and 2022, choreographer Véronique Giasson is back again, magnifying the proposal for four performers – RESET².

Within a mathematical path, the dancers dodge, change trajectories, substitute partners or starting points. Reset zones in the space allow them to recharge, as each new start is more complex than the previous one. Accumulation of spatial configurations that are breathtaking, obsessive.

RESET² is built on the relationship that unites partners, team members and fellow travelers who move side by side. As much a sporting challenge as an artistic one, the choreography presents bodies that seem on the verge of breaking down, yet remain in total control.

Supported by a solid team of designers – LACRYMOBOY for music, Mathieu Leroux for dramaturgy, Jonathan Saucier for costumes and scenic space, Tiffanie Boffa for lighting and Alisia Pobega for rehearsal direction – the four dancers Kennedy Henry, Merryn Kritzinger, Charles Cardin-Bourbeau and Danny de Matos trace and retrace a path where each serves as a support for the other, where all challenge and surpass each other.
