CAROLINE LAURIN-BEAUCAGE | HABITER SA MÉMOIRE
A transparent, open cube in the public space becomes a creative crucible, an ephemeral venue where the freedom of bodies invites consideration, where multiple memories converge.
Choreographer and dancer Caroline Laurin-Beaucage pursues her quest for physical truth in this unifying version of her flagship project “Habiter sa mémoire.” On the Esplanade de la Place des Arts, in the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles, eight women of different generations and backgrounds, all dancers and creators, take turns performing solos in the cube.
For one hour, three days in a row, each of the eight women revisits her personal journey as a dancer and woman, for a total of 24 hours of performance. Using their smart phones, spectators access a voice archive where various impressions, thoughts and memories gathered by the performers complete the live show.
In this choreographic marathon, creation and performance are simultaneous; the simple act of being present becomes a performance, inviting the audience to an introspection in movement.
- Continuous performance from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
