ByFrédérick GravelJean-Christophe Yacono (YAKO)
A choreographic video album engaging an intimate relationship between the camera and the dancing body.
Fear and Greed
Frédérick Gravel returns on stage, in a solo for the first time. With his singular dance, his guitar and supported by three musicians, he is ready to make noise, but also silences.
Les jolies choses
[Grand Prize] Grand Prix de la danse de Montréal 2022, choreographer Catherine Gaudet sets in motion five bodies that move to the rhythm of the metronome.
Civilization and Its Discontents
Des touristes débarquent dans un théâtre sans se soucier du décorum.
ByDorian Nuskin-Oder + Simon Grenier-Poirier
What if the sport once again became playful, full of amazing prowess and rhythmic and spatial variations? The spectator, freed of competitive expectations, savours an intriguing ballet by seasoned pros. Everyone wins.
Alix Dufresne and Marc Béland revolt against tax evasion in a virulent and playful choreography.
Amour, acide et noix
Amour, acide et noix is the first work of a trilogy in which organic life is read on the skin of dancers subjected to impossible physical demands.
Two faces are combined to create a third one. The illusion of being penetrated, inhabited by a foreign body.
This duet that we’ve already done (so many times)
A rare and precious moment that never ceases to surprise and to destabilize with its ostensible casualness, this work is alive with humanity and vulnerability.
Some Hope for the Bastards
Once more accompanied by his “GAnG” of dancers and musicians, Frédérick Gravel presents a choreographic concert filled with a frankly corrosive energy.
Étienne Lepage and choreographer Frédérick Gravel create a pop, drooling, devilishly sexy show.
Usually beauty fails
An invigorating and carnal work that posits conflict as art and elevates reality’s imperfections to the rank of most efficient aesthetic.
All Hell is Breaking Loose, Honey
Une histoire de gars désemparés, dans l’ordinaire masculin américain.
Constructed like a Moebius strip, it takes the spectator on a journey between the inside and the outside of the spectacle, or, as Gravel himself suggests, from the head to the heart to the genitals, in whichever order you wish!
Logic of the worst
This show presents us with five performers who will explore the idea of the “worse” in front of their audience.
High Bed Lower Castle
ByEllen Furey + Malik Nashad Sharpe
A true false tale of big beds and small castles where archetypal characters, dances, words and songs intermingle.
To slowly dissolve. Not disappear but to be added to, to multiply and amalgamate, like sugar in a cup of tea.
The Fading of the Marvelous
A succession of endless recurrences, births, deaths, and rebirths, The Fading of the Marvelous is a dizzying attempt to portray that which transcends us, supported by five dancers.
Au sein des plus raides vertus
Au sein des plus raides vertus est une petite fenêtre ouverte sur le séjour grandiose et tragique de l’humanité, suspendu quelque part entre quête et perte de foi.
ByEllen Furey + Malik Nashad Sharpe
Pivoting towards a pluralist aesthetics, suggesting possibilities beyond authoritarian and coercive visions, SOFTLAMP.autonomies is a repurposed slogan on-top of the abandoned office with a flickering light, deep in the deep blue hegemonic push, trying to believe.
Tout ce qui va revient
Tout ce qui va revient is an amalgam of three solos, performed by a formidable trio of women: Louise Bédard, Sarah Dell’Ava and Clara Furey.
On a bare stage dancers rise up, proud, fragile and as luminous as marble. Their solitude persists beyond their embraces, their dreams tinged with sadness.
Zoom in on the couple – masculine, feminine, mixed, one duo after another. Identities are merged or preserved in the immaculate whiteness of a restricted space.
From under the impenetrable mask of each soloist emanates a tenderness that silently comes to the fore.
Twilight of the Oceans
In spite of this “chronicle of a death foretold”, there still remains the beauty of dusk with some Beethoven piano sonatas in the background, fragments of a humanity in distress.
The Modesty of Icebergs
With this clean new work, Daniel Léveillé delves even deeper into familiar terrain : the body’s demanding confrontation with the body of the Other, the mysterious relationships that govern bodies in space, the tracing of movement and its inexorable ebb and flow.
The Rite of Spring
The meeting of four bodies that never touch, the constant and insistent repetition of their gestures, and the hammering piano on the sound track are all elements used to evoke the chaos of human sacrifice.
Stéphane Gladyszewski chooses to become the medium of the message, to expose his inner self and to produce an exploded self-portrait based in the complexity of a star-studded identity and the phantasmagorical constructions of the psyche.
Two naked bodies, a thermal camera, a video projector, headphones and a few secret manipulations. That’s how we catch Stéphane Gladyszewski by the senses and leads us in the palm of the alcove.
Within this work, light, movement, and memory become the base materials, and impermanence its underlying backdrop.
In side & Aura
A combination of visual art and performance, In Side & Aura are “experiential” and sensual works that establish a taut and vibrant dialogue between the body, matter and light.
Voyage au centre de la scène
Sous forme de lecture-conférence, Voyage au centre de la scène est une porte qui s’entrouvre au coeur de l’écriture théâtrale.
Lancée en 2016 par DLD, Série B est une programmation de danse contemporaine et de ses formes hybrides, présentée en marge de la Biennale CINARS.
