MARIE-PASCALE BÉLANGER | Les bois
“Grandmother, what a terrible big mouth you have!” A little girl, alone. A wolf that has seen better days. How do the tales and movies that defined our childhood still haunt us today? Using masks and puppets, Marie-Pascale paints a series of images that unfold in a surreal and dreamlike fashion. The performer and the objects dialogue through movement. The human disappears behind the characters and the choreography that animates them. Drawing on both contemporary and ancient folklore, this atmospheric and impressionistic performance is not without humour.

JORDAN BROWN | e-Merge (video)
Using the materiality of yarn as a connective tissue, Jordan weaves together fragments he collected – voice messages, movements, poems, images – into a video collage. A meditative and repetitive process, knitting generates an expansive structure through the accumulation of individual knots. It embeds a certain logic into the hands of the knitter. Could that same logic be used to process other materials, such as identity, relationships, or places? The assemblage of textures, the luminescence of the electric yarn sets up the dark background as a psychic space that reveals a queer Black interior.
