MONTREAL, January 26th. From February 26th to March 2nd , 2018, La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines presents SANG BLEU, a contemporary dance creation by Andréane Leclerc and Dany Desjardins.
SANG BLEU is an exploration about the body and its relationship to its material components.
“Clusters of flesh and bacteria that interpenetrate, devour each other, and decompose.”
Whether it is through death, illness or infection, the artists offer a vision of degeneration that divorced from finality or the annihilation of the body. Rather, it is a process of physical transfiguration and the constant evolution of the flesh.
« Desjardins is fully entertaining, challenges your critical mind and still leaves you wanting more… » — Frederic Chais, DANCE PROFILER
« Always animal, her sprawling body, dislocated and ejaculatory, hypnotize us like the singing of a siren. » — Marie-Chantal Scholl, DFDANSE (freely translated from French)
