For Sylvain Émard, dance is a ritual that brings people together. In this performance-event, the choreographer directs an impressive ensemble of 20 dancers, and catapults dance into its liberating dimension.  

Sylvain Émard is a master at the art of getting crowds moving. For more than 10 years, the irresistible wave of his earlier work Le Grand Continental took him to the four corners of the planet, where he directed hordes of dancers. This rigorous, multi-faceted choreographer is as adept at transforming dance into an exuberant art form as he is at exploring the anguish of the human soul. For him, dance is a celebration. Under the gaze of the audience seated around the stage, Rhapsodie amplifies the energy of the mass, bodies propelled by a visceral force. A sensitive and attentive observer of his contemporaries, Émard captures the life drive of beings dancing unselfconsciously, the subversive abandon of bodies on the dance floor. An intense, hard-hitting dance experience.
