GABRIELLE SURPRENANT-LACASSE + COLLECTIF BREGMA
Gabrielle Surprenant-Lacasse | Géante
The feeling that she was gigantic imposed itself on her body image, her inner dialogues, and her relationships with others. This solo is born out of Gabrielle’s desire to go meet this giant and other self-representations fashioned by her imagination. With this intimate fresco, she externalizes the distorted conceptions of herself that inhabit her. Costume, music, and light harmonize in a multi-voice choir that alternately reveals, conceals, magnifies, and disfigures the dance. The time has come for this performer-choreographer to embrace conflict to better free herself from it.
Collectif Bregma | Structures affectives
Connected to the space by a metallic device, the performer explores the material encounter through a rhetoric of movement that suggests a back and forth between the self, covered with a thin film of skin, and exteriority. The corporality of the body and the object forms a real drawing in the space, a place of multiple forces and constraints. A meditative work about the relationships between subject and object, and the porosity of the frontiers between bodies.
