OPENING MUSICAL ACT BY EMPREINTE VAGUE

Bound

Choreographed by Louis-Martin Charest

Performed by: Sylvie Bouchard and Brendan Wyatt
Costume design: Cheryl Lalonde
Music: Franz Shubert. Film adaptation (Barry Lyndon) of PIANO TRIO IN E FLAT (second movement)
Artistic consultant: Marie-Josée Chartier

Are we not bound to those who have made an impression on our hearts? We have forged unspoken agreements that tie us together to our cores and keep us accountable. These are relations that may come and go but never leave us.

Bound is part of a full-length work titled Histoire d'amour, produced by BoucharDanse, and directed by Marie-Josée Chartier. Histoire d'amour premiered through DanceWorks, at the Harbourfront Centre, in May 2012.

A Dusk Dances premiere.

Rawrabide

Gadfly
Choreographed by Ofilio Sinbadinho

Performed by: Zhenya Cerneacov, Sebastian Hirtenstein, Molly Johnson, Kathleen Legassick and Meredith Thompson

Rawrabide is inspired by this quote from a 1970s lower class black homosexual, now considered Harlem renaissance, writer and civil rights activist: “I was not born to be defined by someone else, but by myself, and myself only.” Life is a game. Lots of rules, flocks of players, and sloppy referees… The dancers move in staccato and speak with the bravado from urban realness, social activism, and remix culture.

Premieres this year at Dusk Dances

The place in between

La Otra Orilla
Choreographed and directed by
Myriam Allard and Hedi Graja (La Otra Orilla)

Performed by: Myriam Allard and Hedi Graja
Costumes by: Marianne Thériault
Music: Gaël Lane-Lépine (sound track)

An all-out choreographic exploration for three performers: a dancer, a singer and a bata de cola (a long skirt typical to flamenco that transforms the movement and gives rise to another body).

First premiered at Dusk Dances in 2016.

Passerelles-la riviÈre

Choreographed by Julie Pilon & MÉlissandre Tremblay-Bourassa

Performed by: Julie Pilon, Mélissandre Tremblay-Bourassa
and Pierre-Alexandre St-Yves
Music: Pierre-Alexandre St-Yves
Outside Eye: Sophie Michaud

Created directly in the swell of the sinuous L’Assomption river, Passerelles – la rivière is inspired by Lanaudière environment and by the flow of water. Choreographers Julie Pilon and Mélissandre Tremblay-Bourassa illustrate with movement various aquatic scenes, from tragic drowning to playful splashes. A choir composed by the Danse Clandestine company (directed by Julie Pilon) supplement the artictic proposition, like waves at the surface of the water.

La gigue en souvenir

Bouchardanse
Choreographed by Sylvie Bouchard

With Mélissandre Tremblay-Bourassa for the last section

Performed by: Zhenya Cerneacov, Sebastian Hirtenstein, Molly Johnson, Kathleen Legassick, Meredith Thompson and Brendan Wyatt
Music by:
Les Charbonniers de l’Enfer
Costumes by: Nina Okens

La gigue en souvenir makes the past come alive through a journey inspired by the energy, the complexity and the vigour of the traditional Québec gigue. Six dancers perform, along with young dancers from L’école secondaire de l’Achigan, reinventing the folk tradition of the "gigue" in a contemporary fashion. This dance, created by Sylvie Bouchard, becomes a bridge between past and present and an ode to this most expressive of heritage. Join us for this rich and invigorating experience.

La gigue en souvenir premiered as a Dusk Dances commission in 2009.
