After a 15-year absence Sylvain Émard is back onstage with a new solo, rediscovering himself as a dancer changed by the passing years, fascinating territory for experimentation.
Ever since Ceci n’est pas la fin du monde and in conjunction with the grand adventure of the Super méga continental, a new chapter has begun for Sylvain Émard. The choreographer is returning to the stage in a vibrant solo after 15 years of creating works for bodies other than his own. He is discovering that he the dancer has been changed by the passing years, his body now a fascinating territory for experimentation. A challenge that this artist has long nurtured is given concrete form at last, at the invitation of Agora de la danse.
