Chutes: descendre au ciel | World Premiere

Choreographer : Alix Dufresne & Marc Béland

Evening presented by

2nd participation at FQD

Choreographer and director Alix Dufresne works with both theatre artists and performers, producing raw movements that are not usually seen in the world of dance. This time, she once again presents the great dancer and actor Marc Béland in a touching testament to the limitations of our body. This performative piece addresses the issue of physical and mental degeneration, the disease that defies science and technological advances, inevitably reminding us of our condition as living – and therefore mortal – beings.
