Katia-Marie Germain

Katia-Marie Germain’s choreography in this new piece unfolds with finesse and almost graphic subtlety. The set design is a blend of furniture and various objects to suggest the fictitious rooms of a mansion. Scenes follow one another in chiaroscuro, capturing portraits of the women. With bare bones movement imbued with modesty, the dancers depict the drama of people with secrets. Fragile yet also strong, they present a delicate enigma tinged with guilt, pretence and disappearance. Playing on the tensions between the characters and the powerful alchemy of the performers, Masquerades is a poetic intrigue where how the story ends lies in the eye of the beholder.
