A world tour in four dance presentations on three continents, the choreographic relay Danse Mutante closes the circle in Montreal with a dance marathon organized
by Mélanie Demers. At the finishing line, the duet Cantique, created by the Quebec choreographer in Montreal in 2018, will join up with its three mutations, one by Ann
Liv Young (New York), another by Kettly Noël (Bamako) and the third by Ann Van den Broek (Amsterdam). An artistic and profoundly human journey.
