Everything that Blooms | Margie Gillis

12 September 202419:00Cinquième Salle | Place des Arts

Description

A full evening with renowned dancer and choreographer Margie Gillis and the Legacy Project is in the spotlight. A solo by Margie Gillis will be presented, accompanied by original music by Niko Friesen, in addition to two unique solos for the Legacy Project dancers.

The show will feature The Whole Bloomin’ Thing, a performance by Legacy Project dancers inspired by the world of James Joyce, in particular his seminal work Ulysses. The piece delves into the intimate thoughts of Molly Bloom, represented by the eponymous character. It explores her environment, her social relationships, her partner and the intellectual Stephan. The story weaves a portrait of a woman deeply rooted in the natural world, triumphing in a vibrant celebration of affirmation despite the complexities of her life.

By supporting the Legacy Project, Margie Gillis ensures that the heritage of dance is not only preserved, but also alive and dynamic – constantly evolving, growing, and shaping the future of dance. Every step onstage marks a step toward the dance landscape of tomorrow.
