Junkyard/Paradis

Following the enthusiasm of both the audience and the critics back in January 2011, Agora de la danse and Usine C join up to bring back this brilliant piece by Mélanie Demers. JunkyardParadis blurs the status quo and catapults us into a universe at once outlandish and strangely familiar. The choreographer allows the many antagonistic realities of life to coexist on stage: the horror and the joy, the elegant and the distasteful, grace and desolation… The Garden of Eden rubs elbows with a dumpster; they become confounded with each other and then merge. Five performers play out the passions, the fears, and the destructive impulses. This show is a mirror held up to our world, a world both dark and magnificent.
