An invitation to a truly playful experience. Dancemakers, Toronto’s trouble makers, come to Montreal with their latest creation, It’s about time : 60 dances in 60 minutes “How long is a minute? Close your eyes. When you think one minute has passed, raise your hand.” Try this exercice with a group and you will see that no two people raise their hand at the same time. Oscillating between the absolute precision of a stopwatch and individual perception, between acting and performance, Michael Trent and his 5 dancers focus, with humor, on the paradoxes of time. During the piece, several unbridled sequences follow each other, similar, but never the same. Simple and crazy actions are repeated. Movement and time change, creating time-lags, absurd moments, and finally, laughter before the seriousness and efforts of the dancers. This invigorating performance is a genuine feat, a dive into audacity!
