Dave St-Pierre

Length : 1h35

A grand premiere at Danse Danse. The impetuous choreographer Dave St-Pierre is inspired by the heroic Joan of Arc in an illuminating piece about the pursuit of the absolute, the force of instinct, courage and faith. Ordeal and transcendence are at the heart of this explosive, intimate and engaging work for three performers that he created with the dancers Anne Le Beau and Bernard Martin, and the actor Hubert Proulx. These warriors of the impossible made possible are driven by a passionate will to live. Performing on an inclined stage, they have as partners the ground, poster paint and water. Their skin is covered in digital tattoos by the artist Alex Huot, who sculpts bodies and summons wild, raging nature to the stage, a supernatural world. The warm, embracing lighting by Marc Parent and the music composed by Stéfan Boucher add a rich sensuality to the piece. An initiatory adventure, an urban epic, a new mythology.
