ELIE-ANNE ROSS + CIRCUL’R BÉRÉNICE DUPUIS & DAVID PHIPHAK
From March 10 to April 10, 2023 | Webcast
ELIE-ANNE ROSS | FLUX
Inspired by Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway, dancer and choreographer Elie-Anne Ross applies the stream of consciousness technique to her popping. This narrative approach allows her to take stock of her mental state and curb self-destructive behaviour. She scans her body with her isolations and uses waving to enter a meditative state, slow the flow of her consciousness, and regain control of her body. Improbable juxtapositions abound in this chaotic and surreal manifestation of the imagination.
CIRCUL’R BÉRÉNICE DUPUIS & DAVID PHIPHAK | Kafka disco
How do we balance our need for others with our quest for freedom? Four performers open the poetic valves of breakdance, letting in softness, fluidity, and partnering work. The mutual aid and collaboration that emerge at first only turn into an alienating organization. In a Kafkaesque metamorphosis, the driving force of the group moves from symbiosis to a nest of vipers to cogs in the machine, a new entity reigning over its parts like a stern ruler, evoking a sea monster who carries individuals away to accomplish its own agenda: the Leviathan.
