À CORPS PERDU | SHARING MADNESS

Information on the activity

September 8, 2022 to October 22, 2022

From September 9 to October 22, 2022.

The group exhibition "à corps perdu | sharing madness" brings together artists from Canada and abroad to reflect on the different expressions of dance and movement in contemporary art. This project explores the idea of moving together: the curators are interested in what choreography can reveal about our interpersonal ties and our need for a community. Each of the works employs the vocabularies, methodologies or codes of dance and choreography, investigating their potential for shared movement in addition to envisioning the nuances of embodiment and intimacy from various angles. The artworks encourage us to consider our relationships with others and new ways of being together in the wake of the year 2020, which has changed the very expression of human connections. The exhibition asks the question: what is the meaning of togetherness from here on out?
