As part of Tangente

Édifice Wilder Espace Danse Book

This festive, sensual and political evening is a new occasion to celebrate the meeting of two of Montréal’s professional dance scenes: neo-burlesque and contemporary dance. Take your time, notice a hip, come across a butt cheek, languorously look at the outline of bodies, but don’t touch! The peeling away of layers suggests nudity rather than exposing it. While maintaining the main codes of burlesque, a contemporary perspective breaks with tradition, feeds new aesthetics, and raises political questions. How to reclaim current discourses on the body? What are the distinctions between sensuality, eroticism, and sexuality? How does the cabaret formula foster creative license? Surrounded by sequins and mirrors, let the poetic, disconcerting and suggestive images intoxicate you. Are you ready?

Eight numbers dreamed up by fourteen artists, a bar right inside the venue, and a queer-friendly dance party with DJ TIGNASSE… We’ve thought of everything!
