Lay Me Low

Director : Marlene Millar | Production Film Danse Migration

@Marlene Millar

Lay me Low opens a communal space of experience of mourning: individual voices woven together to make one song, steps taken in rhythm create one walk. Ten performers, percussive body dancers and musicians, communicate a universal feeling of loss while evoking a paradoxical sense of intimacy.

Les Insulaires

Choreographer : Valérie Lessard

@Valérie Lessard

This explosive and disturbing behind-closed-doors work is a choreographic reinterpretation of scenes from two movies from the 60s that, freed from their original narrative context, reveal their powerful movement vocabulary. A new dramatic composition stems from deconstructing the power relationships between the protagonists.

Choreographer : Sarah Booth

@Sarah Booth

The VIBRE ! video, which seeks inspiration from animation and cinemagraph techniques, is the main part of a multidisciplinary exhibit project of the same name, soon to become a show. She sets out to examine vibrant and feverish body movement in a time and a space where everything is frozen to bring out this vibration, this liveliness.

La Luxure

Choreographer : Christian Lalumière

@François Messier-Rheault

The choreographic work LA LUXURE sets the scene for Eros—the lively strength of seduction—and Thanatos—that of death—in utter agony. To avoid setting either of these figures in a reductive symbolism, the work takes on the strangeness of the struggle between prime beauty and irreversible downfall, a struggle that is played, thwarted, and played again, endlessly, in the arena of existence.

TWITCH is an experimental performance video incorporating contemporary dance, contortions and acrobatics. TWITCH chronicles the life-pulse of a creature in conflict: its stirrings/twitching/convulsions, its agonizing missteps and battle with demons; an ode to overcoming dark energies that lie within.

@Catherine Lavoie-Marcus / Priscilla Guy

The bodies of two women detach from an immaculately white background. From ordinary and conventional shapes, they unknowingly transform into automatons, wild beasts, free-falling objects, primates.

@Steven Daivasagaya

Raz-de-Marée is gentle, yet violent. We wish to reach the body, dive into intimacy, sensuality, but we also want to lose ourselves into the immensity, to be destabilized. It is insecurity, confusion, but also this being that exists. Raz-de-Marée, it the expression of this unique beauty, which brings our attention to this wave that is in harmony with the scenery.

@Catherine Morin

A post-apocalyptic world where the sole survivors are people with Down syndrome who have built their village on the ruins of a former carnival fair. They find a mechanical doll that is played by the only artist without a disability. The people with Down syndrome monopolize the doll, manipulating her and training her to create a circus act.
