BETWEEN | Marie Béland | maribé – sors de ce corps & Montréal Danse

Marie Béland is interested in words as body movement, as sensation. Plunged into an incessant spoken discourse, the body reveals an “invisible choreography” which questions the identity of a dance that is free of gestural dancing, but filled with danced gestures. Circuit-Est – Studio C – November 15, 2016 | 12:45PM – 01:35PM + Circuit-Est – Studio Peter-Boneham – November 17, 2016 | 08:30PM – 09:15PM

-

Habiter sa mémoire | Caroline-Laurin-Beaucage | Lorganisme

For several uninterrupted hours, positioned inside a box without walls, the performer plunges into the heart of her body’s dance memories. Sensors capture data on Caroline’s physical state and the surrounding atmosphere, and these are retransmitted live during the performance. Outdoor in-situ performance from 04:00PM to 8:30PM | Square next to Place-des-Arts’ main entrance | 175, Sainte-Catherine West [08:00 to 08:30PM - Showcase Off-Cinars]

-

Animal triste | Mélanie Demers | MAYDAY

In the world’s grand parade, humans are little more than sad animals. But animals that find solace in beauty, in a desire for immortality. Animal Triste is a kind of freeze frame, an attempt to understand nature and the role of mankind in all its humanity. Circuit-Est – Studio Jeanne-Renaud  | November 15, 2016 | 08:30PM – 09:30PM

Promotion in partnership with Suzie Larivée – La Tribu (France & Canada)

-

Instant Community | Kathy Casey, Sylvain Lafortune, Brice Noeser Peter Quanz, Peter Trosztmer | Montréal Danse

What we create, feel, experience is deeply dependent on how those around us feel, react, interact. A visual as much as a choreographic experience, social rather than spectacular, Instant Community explores our ability to collectively produce meaning and work, questioning our relationships to others, our means of communicating. Circuit-Est – Studio C | November 16, 2016 | 09:00PM – 10:30PM

-

Fin de série | Manon Oligny | Manon fait de la danse

Fin de série is intended as a choreographic and political manifesto, introducing five girls identically dressed and hair-styled, like androids. They feature typical female forms and stereotypes, appearing as though they have just sprung from a manufacturing plant. Short live performance (5-7min) in a continuous loop | Window display at CDEx UQAM 01:50PM-2:20PM | 405, Sainte-Catherine Est (corner Saint-Denis)

-

Icône Pop | Mélanie Demers | Mayday

Created upon the invitation of B-Motion (Bassano), Icône Pop is a playful clash between religious and pop iconographies, the sacred and the profane, saintly glorification and self-glorification. Featuring the auras of the Virgin Mary and Beyoncé in a striptease of the utmost modesty. Circuit-Est – Studio Jeanne-Renaud | November 18, 2016 | 01:30PM – 02:00PM

Promotion in partnership with Suzie Larivée – La Tribu (France & Canada)

 

BESIDE | Marie Béland | maribé – sors de ce corps & Montréal Danse

Presentation of excerpts from the choreographic research for the new creation BESIDE. Words as well as movement are drawn from the Internet, that infinite bank of information. The performers adopt a specialized discourse borrowed from others in a game of credibility and precarity Who is saying what? Circuit-Est – Studio Peter Boneham | November 18, 2016 | 12:45PM – 01:00PM

Art Circulation & Manon fait de la danse

Art Circulation & Manon fait de la danse

Art Circulation is proud to welcome choreographer Manon Oligny‘s company Manon de la danse, as an associate-member. The company benefits promotional services, in particular for the piece Fin de Série.

-

Press kit for the piece Fin de série (pdf)

-

The company Manon fait de la danse was established in 1999. Without frills, Manon Oligny nonetheless explores the fabric and stitches of human beings. She is interested in the fragility and complexity of individuals, creating tough, spirited and carnal choreographies with theatrical flair and urgency of movement. She confronts the body with its physical and mental limits. The line between sensuality and pain is far from being a straight one.

Displaying a wide range of emotions from pink to black, the choreographer examines the feminine – its representations (whether taboo or banal), its constraints, its urges – as well as the desecration and marketing of women’s bodies. Using fallen princesses and characters from fairy tales (Blanche-Neige (pas selon Disney!), 2009), Manon Oligny tactfully deconstructs and distorts the thorny symbolic associated with these archetypes. Animal figures, particularly horses, are also recurrent in her work (Pouliches, d’après l’oeuvre de Cindy Sherman in 2007 and L’Écurie in 2008), evoking the wild and untameable side of human beings.

Interdisciplinarity is a driving force in Oligny’s work, often collaborating with photographers, filmmakers, writers and digital artists. Different art forms and technologies fuel her critical thinking about choreography, making her creations that much richer. Her desire to probe diverse aspects of human nature and to explore new ways of creating has led her, beginning in 2013, to conceive projects with younger people and involve them in the creative process (CRASH : Quand le jeu vidéo rencontre la danse contemporaine).

In a very straightforward manner, Manon Oligny uses dance to reflect on the human circus. A theater of impatience, passions and raging identity.
