DANA GINGRAS | CREATION DESTRUCTION
All the Hope in the World
As the sun sets over the Esplanade Tranquille, eleven magnificent dancers and a dozen outstanding musicians interact with nebulas of light. A monumental work of stark virtuosity, Creation Destruction combines a call to environmental action with a profound metaphysical experience. An explosion of sensations in the very heart of the city, it will make you feel in every fibre of your being that we are just as capable of creation as we are of destruction.
To compose the music, choreographer Dana Gingras called on four members of legendary Montreal band Godspeed You! Black Emperor, who are joined by an ensemble of musicians. The dancing pixels of the captivating, shape-shifting video installation were produced by UK collective United Visual Artists. In this time of unbridled capitalism and climate emergency, Creation Destruction stimulates our collective intelligence through a sensory overflow, reminding us that creativity is always a source of hope.
