Mon corps jamais ne s’arrêtera de danser, 5m19s

Coproduction Totem Contemporain / MNM

Jean Tartaroli, lighting. Sarah Veillon, costumes.

This work for music and dance is a captivating journey into the world of alienation. It features fascinating sonic and choreographic gestures of great expressiveness despite their starkness. Montreal-based composer/instrument-builder Jean-François Laporte and French choreographer/dancer Barbara Sarreau are creating musical dance…and choreographed music — quite a challenge. Here, the sounds the dancer makes are amplified and integrated to the soundtrack; there, the musician’s gestures interact with the dancer’s: the great solitude the theme expresses is softened by the artists’ close interaction.

Programme

Composing in the Present!

The SMCQ has been moving in step with the lively rhythms of new music for almost fifty years. With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
