Dance without borders

After remounting monumental with the Holy Body Tattoo and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, choreographer Dana Gingras returns to the large-scale format with FRONTERA. A socially engaged artist, she investigates the notion of borders—political, economic and liminal—and operations of power by exploring their impact on the body. The musical score is by cult Montreal post-rock band Fly Pan Am, with scenography by United Visual Artists. With fearless physicality, the supercharged dancers perform daring, high-voltage moves. On stage, the lights, music and movement are inextricably linked, equal participants in the powerful singularity of the work. FRONTERA is a relentlessly coherent choreographic and theatrical experience that challenges and reinvents codes. A total work of art.
