Each year, Danse Danse supports artists by making rehearsal spaces available, thereby allowing them to deepen several aspects of their creative work.
In March 2021, Anne Plamondon will be in residence at the Cinquième Salle at Place des Arts to work again on her creation Seulement toi, scheduled for spring 2020 but which had to be postponed to a later date.
The choreographer and performer will thus have the opportunity to deepen and finalize her choreographic work while teaching it to a new partner.
About the work
Seulement toi—meaning “alone with oneself” as much as “feeling alone when I’m with you”—, is an exploration of everything that brings us together or separates us from one another.

In a landscape full of brambles and thorns, while searching for roots that once were, one will encounter hassle and pitfalls, as well as the fundamental pulse to keep on moving.
Between fortitude & vulnerability, abandonment & momentum, a certainty emerges: one’s true self is one's own to find.
