L’ENCRE NOIRE DE LA TRESSE

L’ENCRE NOIRE DE LA TRESSE

Information on the activity

November 13, 2019 to November 16, 2019

Created in the mystical landscapes of Ireland, L’Encre Noire – the first full-length piece from LA TRESSE – draws on the Romanian, Quebecois and Irish roots of the
three dancer/ choreographers. It is a timeless journey, a series of rituals inherited from their cultural origins that combine folklore, fantasy and the sacred. Engaging in a
full-bodied expression the performers experience release in the ecstasy of repetition and rhythm.
