|Recurring Event (See all)
Performances from November 28 - December 1
Agora de la Danse – Édifice Wilder, 1435 Rue de Bleury #102
Montreal, QC H3A 2H7 Canada

By revealing the fragility of the body, Karine Ledoyen serves as a witness to what was and what will be.

Advancing age? Injury? The arrival of a child? What was the tipping point?  To achieve a sensitive, accurate portrayal, research included testimonials from several generations of dancers who experienced loss or grief – what they had accomplished through dance, and sometimes what they had hoped to achieve through dance but did not. Blending fiction and reality onstage, the choreographer wants the spectator to feel that vibrant corollary between the powerful attraction of a beautiful art form and the ultimate difficulty in letting go of it, to accept and mourn its passing.
