CHARLES BRECARD & ROXANNE DUPUIS | PROTO-TYPE
Two beings in a collapsed, dystopian environment challenge their bodies through raw, sensitive, and vibrant movements. Are they lost souls, survivors, machines, explorers? Bit by bit, they shed the layers of fabric that cover them up, leaving traces of the bond that unites them, the past that coursed through them, striving to leave a legacy to those who will follow in their footsteps. In this futuristic world with a pop aesthetic, the stage becomes a refuge where a fraternal bond is solidified, providing human warmth. This healing space gives room for self-transcendence, release, and the pursuit of freedom.
TANVEER ALAM & ATRI NUNDY | The Tagore Project
Two dancers settle into their memories and reminisce about a time and place far away. Finding an anchor in the music and poetry of Indian Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, they dig into their personal histories and embark on a journey of togetherness. They bring their recollections into the present through their individual practices of Kathak and Bharatanatyam. As children too, they danced to the songs of Tagore. Seeped into nostalgia, they honour the Bengali culture that nurtured them, working through each world created with full enjoyment. They hope that this intimate celebration brings them closer to Tagore, to their language, families, and communities.
