Slowly dissolve. Not disappear, but add up, multiply, amalgamate. Like sugar in a tea. Caught in a vice between a past and an uncertain future, dancer Marie-Philippe Santerre delicately dances this unknown trajectory. Like the stem of a plant that springs up in spurts and turns several times on itself to unfold. She agrees to wait. Perceives its own mutation.

When the noise is silent, only the dull pounding of the blood in her veins and the perpetual shock of being alive remain.

Relying entirely on the evocative power of the body, Catherine Gaudet lays the foundation for a new aesthetic approach.
