For 2017, performing artists and choreographers were asked to collaborate with live musicians in co-creating work under the theme of "Nocturnes."

--Janet Collard
--Nol Simonse

In the Aftermath- Embodying Life-Changing Events

A shared show with Christine Germain/ STEM and Geneviéve C. Ferron

Christine Germain/STEM presents Corps Étranger

Is it a mirage, or a mirror of our perceptions? There are abstract shapes transforming before us, which may seem extra-human but are still living things. Ever so slowly, they move to the sounds of their breath, our breath and the electric noise of the nervous system. The body’s strange and evocative plasticity invites us to reconceive our own physicality as if a metaphor for evolution. The meticulous movement aesthetic draws from the study and practice of Contact Improvisation, phenomenology, and somatics such as the Feldenkrais Method. The latter inspires an exploration of Darwin’s stages of evolution, and how we are all creatures of habit adapting to new environments, leaving behind past identities to embrace new ones. How can we get on with our lives once we have faced the stranger in ourselves?

Reviews

“(Le Projet Migration)… is engaging, heartfelt, and inspired by real events. This honesty and authenticity add a dimension to the work that cannot be faked.”

Bloody Underrated

On peut aussi, a souligné le magistrat, se marier avec soi-même: un peu compliqué quand on veut la séparation de biens.
