Over three days, according to schedules adapted to audiences all over the world, the dancers of the Compagnie Marie Chouinard will take turns interacting with the audience via Zoom.
These spontaneous dance performance will take their inspiration from a heartfelt wish that a member of the audience confides to a performer. In response to this desire, this first step, the dancer will play the role of medium between the forces of life and the unconscious mind of the person who has made the wish, initiating a flow of energy, a movement towards a possible enactment of change. After performing this kind of incantatory dance, reminiscent of the Pythia in ancient Greece, performers will take time to regenerate their bodies and minds before undertaking a new performance.
The performer “replies” to each wish expressed with a dance which lasts for approximately three minutes.
On each of the three days, members of the audience will be able to view all the dances and all the sharing of wishes.
This free event is open to everyone. You just need to register, and 24 hours before the performance you will be provided with a link.
Presented by Compagnie Marie Chouinard in collaboration with Danse Danse.
