The door opened west

Sarah Chase

Halfway between theatre and dance, The door opened west, by Sarah Chase, tells with finesse and emotion a very personal story of performer Marc Boivin. In a journey into the depths of memory, remembrance and the emotional charge of the place, the empty space of the room comes to life in the lighting of James Proudfoot and the sound environment of Antoine Bédard.

The staging of a life, the notions of identity, destiny and free will, and the influence we have on each other are particularly relevant in this encounter between the performer and the choreographer.
