The noises and lights of the city are the very driving force of this piece. Presented on 15 consecutive nights and performed by the dancer Naishi Wang, it plunges the spectator into immersive interaction with the surrounding cityscape.
After Tokyo (Japan) and Poitiers (France), this solo by Paul-André Fortier has now come to Place des Festivals in Montreal. Regardless of the weather, the dancer Naishi Wang will perform for 15 consecutive nights a dance that echoes the city at night. Captivated by the present moment, the passerby discovers a work that is fully immersed in the cityscape, directed and staged by the noises and lights of the city itself.

We recognize in a flash (…) Fortier's signature style, but also a mimetism in the movement, a way of inhabiting the space as though resurfacing from the depths of time.
