Art Circulation is pleased to partner with Flak, FÔVE Diffusion and Nordberg Movement to present thirteen showcases in conjunction with the 2023 Festival TransAmériques (FTA). This alternative joint showcase, aimed at presenters, is an opportunity for us to reinforce the collaborative spirit in the world of contemporary dance and performance.
réunion.s (création en chantier)
13h30 : Pitch
Premiered in spring 2024, Marie Béland’s next creation (provisionally titled Reunion.s) will focus on creating a junction point between sorority, rituals and polyrhythmic coordination. How does fine polyrhythmic cyclic writing meet our ever-changing and unpredictable humanity?
How can we approach choreographically the paradox that inhabits us, namely, the balance between free will and pre-established, between our normal rituals and our autonomy? How can we create solidarity, support, and magnetism among human beings gathered around such a practice?
Compagnie Virginie Brunelle
14h00 : Extrait
Against the backdrop of the chaos of an era turned upside down, Fables projects us into fantastical spaces from which larger-than-life characters emerge—contemporary female archetypes who paved the way to freedom from invisible yet real barriers.
Sylvain Lafortune & Esther Rousseau-Morin
14h30 : Extrait
Sylvain Lafortune and Esther Rousseau-Morin join forces to create their first duet. In evocative, highly technical dance, L’un L’autre constructs a radiant ode to the beauty of “we.”
15h00 : Extrait
Guided by his impulses and a vulnerability without false modesty, Charles-Alexis Desgagnés unveils his dreamlike and queer universe, one molt at a time. The fluid movement that gently twists the body to better propel it into the air in stroboscopic lighting creates a cathartic performance that is contagious.
L’écho des racines
Sarah Bronsard/Cie La Sporée
15h30 : Extrait
Dans l’écho des racines is a choreographic project initiated by the invitation of BIGICO (contemporary quebecois step-dancing presenter), to develop a work where quebecois step-dancing and flamenco meet within the same corporeality.
What Will Come
Sébastien Provencher & Julia B. Laperrière
16h00 : Extrait
This new creation questions the human obsession of categorization, juxtaposed with the world’s natural tendency to move towards chaos. How are categories, order and compartmentalization reflected in our bodies and in our environment?
Radio III / ᎦᏬᏂᏍᎩ ᏦᎢ
Hanako Hoshimi-Caines, Zoë Poluch, Elisa Harkins
16h30 : Extrait / Pitch
RADIO III / ᎦᏬᏂᏍᎩ ᏦᎢ is both an indigenous futuristic concert and a beautifully uncomfortable dance performance that strives to make visible what has been kept invisible in colonial systems of recognition and aesthetics.
