Milan Gervaisfonctionnalitécorpsféminin

« I wonder about the feminine identity that is made and transmitted through the body and language of dance. I want to question the language that I develop, more specifically through a duet of women, in order to put and articulate a sensitive and critical look on what it induces, suggests, namely which ‘feminine’ is it? »

June 7 to 18, 2021 – With Marine Rixhon and Jessica Serli

Kyana LyneTodas

« I am specifically interested in observing how we, as individual artists in a collaborative environment, can move with a common state of awareness. How we carry our conflict and the ways in which this affects one another…I am curious about the body’s complex vulnerabilities. »

March 8 to 19, 2021 – With Amara Barner, Miranda Chan and Sydney McManus

Marie-Maxime RossRecherche de collisions

« It was when I felt gusts of wind on my skin, swam through vast stretches of water, saw the sun reflect on the freshly fallen snow that I felt this contact with nature. I would like to recreate this living world through the memories of those moments, those states. »

April 26 to May 7, 2021 – With Étienne De Durocher and Annabelle Fournier

Handy YacintheOrganic Mechanics

« Organic Mechanics is a method that uses opposite polarities: rigidity and fluidity, control and letting go, robotics and humans. This residency is an opportunity to start a choreographic work that has been calling me for some years. I want to put street dance on stage without distorting it. »

April 5 to 16, 2021 – With Kevin Gohou and Marie-Reine Kabasha
