LE 24 AVRIL 2012 À 19 H 10 ET 19 H 35
Montréal – Performance in situ à la Place des Arts
Présentation du solo in-perfections dans une foule. in-perfections est une œuvre in situ qui brouille la frontière entre l’interprète et le spectateur. Errance du corps, solo sans territoire, une danse précise, discrète et nerveuse qui à la fois se fond dans le public et s’en démarque. Cette pièce d’une durée de 12 minutes est chorégraphiée par Florence Figols, en collaboration avec l’interprète Zuzana Sevcikova.
Présentée aussi le 25 avril à 19 h 10 et 19 h 35.
