At place des Festivals, Martin Messier directs “live” 60 professional dancers in a vast doomsday ballet.

Conducting the performers by means of a wireless communication system, the multidisciplinary artist pilots a human machine that responds magnificently to his instructions. In spasms and waves, the massed group pulsates like a single body, coiling inward and then fanning outward, charging forward and then hunkering down. Both primitive and futuristic, here is an outdoor contemporary dance performance seen only too rarely.
