In this performance, the exceptional visual artist Sylvie Cotton pursues an interest in the movement of breath and breathing, a way of interacting with the moment, exploring this intimate, shapeless form, questioning the relation between two states of presence.
With this piece, Sylvie Cotton celebrates twenty years of an atypical dancing career. A collector of identities with a strong interest in the intimate and encounters with the other, she defines her practice as art-action, creating as many occasions as possible for human interactions. For Le Jour se lèv(r)e, Sylvie Cotton has called on Anne Plamondon to play the mythological figure and veiled presence of the harpy as she delves into the transmission of consciousness and sensory perceptions.

Sylvie Cotton's artistry is like a breath. Interior and indeed intimate, momentary, more than ephemeral, light yet profound.
