RADIOMATON (OFF-CINARS)

Installed in an individual photo booth type booth, and equipped with headphones broadcasting local opinion radio, each RADIOMATON user must repeat aloud all the words he/she hears. Simultaneously, he/she imitates a gestural score displayed on the screen, interpreted by performers Rachel Harris, Sylvain Lafortune or Bernard Martin, and constructed from these gestures that we make […]

Chambres [premier cycle] (OFF-CINARS)

Taking as a starting point the effect of colour on our perception, Chambres explores our relationship to intimacy, memory and habits. Under shifting colours, a familiar stage slowly morphs into abstraction, as the commonplace and the extraordinary meet in this choreographic and visual panorama. Intimacy opens up to the world, as the room becomes a […]

Recurrent Measures Deluxe (OFF-CINARS Circuit-Est)

RMD evokes optimistic persistence by oscillating between meditation and queer exaltation. This hybrid dance/performance by George Stamos combines hypnotic circular movement patterns and detailed flow with musical support from The Younger Lovers and original haute-couture costumes by fashion designer Antonio Ortega. RMD’s cumulative actions, sound and costumes aim to gradually balance the space, and the […]

BESIDE (OFF-CINARS Circuit-Est)

BESIDE is the third work in a trilogy led by Montreal choreographer Marie Béland, which explores how we relate to others. Using real-time fake news, BESIDE relies entirely on the radio stations of each city in which the play is performed. Performers can only repeat what they hear on the radio into their headphones, they […]

Mystic-informatic (Studio Flak / Sweden-Canada collab / OFF-CINARS)

Two large metal structures, a 1983 computer and small yellow 3D printed sculptures: in this setting evoking the ruins of capitalism and the waste produced by the constant renewal of technology, dance grows like an optimistic mushroom, the matsutake. In a punk, apocalyptic and feminist spirit, the power is given back to dance and our […]

The Ogre, the Phoenix and the Faithful Friend (OFF-CINARS)

The Ogre, The Phoenix and the Faithful Friend unites Lebanese-Canadian performer Charlie Prince and Lebanese multimedia artist Tarek Chemaly around questions of historical amnesia, healing, recognition and resilience. Charlie Prince interacts with and transforms an installation composed of suspended coloured panels, on which Tarek Chemaly’s videos are projected, whose assemblage of images from Lebanese pop-culture evokes […]

UNFOLD | 7 PERSPECTIVES (OFF-CINARS Circuit-Est)

The body opens, closes, short-circuits. The voice stutters, hiccups and fractures. Tremors and loss of balance become elements of a three-part work with seven dancers in flight. Together, they search for unity while fighting for their identities. Although fluidity has long been Danièle Desnoyers’s trademark, here she chooses a new approach, fragmenting movement, making the […]
