In Mécaniques nocturnes, Anne Plamondon returns to the sources of the first movement, the first desire: a primitive state of being, the human animal before the emergence of the mysterious, impossible-to-muzzle urge to create and to build.
After a long career as a dancer working with renowned Canadian and European choreographers, including an outstanding collaboration with the RUBBERBANDance Group, Anne Plamondon is now making her mark as a choreographer. Mécaniques nocturnes is a real turning point in her career, a confirmation of her desire to explore personal intuitions in greater depth. For this new piece she is again working with director Marie Brassard, a collaboration that was initiated with her first choreography, Les mêmes yeux que toi, presented in 2012 at Agora de la danse.

Subtle material for a unique, exceptional dancer who pulls off an improbable mélange of infinite delicacy, total fluidity and muscular power, but also of physical and emotional impact.
