CIRCUL’R BÉRÉNICE DUPUIS & DAVID PHIPHAK | Kafka Paradise
How do we balance our need for others with our quest for freedom? Through partnering and group work, four performers explore the poetic potential of breakdance, into which they inject softness and fluidity. The collaboration that first develops becomes more and more alienating. In a Kafkaesque metamorphosis, the dancers achieve symbiosis before turning into a nest of vipers, then becoming cogs in a machine from which a new being emerges. Ruling sternly over its parts, this Leviathan is driven by the instinct to devour individuals.

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.
