BESIDE – maribé - sors de ce corps & Montréal Danse
In BESIDE, Marie Béland uses real-time radio as a soundtrack imposed on the performers. Among news reports, pop music, interviews, car advertising, how can this heterogeneous web constitute the framework of the choreography? Becoming vectors of fragments from outside the theater, how can bodies make this invisible visible?

THIS DUET THAT WE'VE ALREADY DONE (SO MANY TIMES) – Frédérick Gravel / Grouped'ArtGravelArtGroup
Inspiring and unclassifiable, choreographer and jack-of-all-trades artist Frédérick Gravel shares the stage with the invigorating Brianna Lombardo. Under an apparently simple, laid back allure, the duo gradually evolves between states of being, with a stage presence that is disturbingly natural, turning the banal into poetry.
Frédérick Gravel is an associate creator at DLD - Daniel Léveillé Danse.

ICÔNE POP – MAYDAY / Mélanie Demers
Created upon the invitation of B-Motion (Bassano, Italy), Icône Pop is a playful clash between religious and pop iconographies, the sacred and the profane, the saintly glorification and the self-glorification. Featuring the auras of the Virgin Mary and Beyoncé, in a striptease performed with the utmost modesty.
