Perceiving the world in new ways. That is the approach pursued by Agora de la danse this autumn with works that constantly invert our perceptions. In Danse Mutante, a dance relay conceived by Mélanie Demers, to create is also to destroy antecedents. Aurélie Pedron turns perception and conventional wisdom upside down with Antichambre. Suites Ténébreuses by Cas Public (with lighting by Lucie Bazzo) transmutes imaginary fears so that they give way to the phantasmagorical. Van Grimde Corps Secrets imagines a future where humans are enhanced by technology or hybridized with other species, thus completing the EVE 2050 cycle. The Australian Lucy Guerin places the self-focused individual in contact with the Other in Split. LA TRESSE explores the multiform nature of our identities in Encre Noire. Using theatrical illusion, Out Innerspace Dance Theatre (Vancouver) creates an otherworldly zone that toys with materiality in Bygones. Sometimes it’s simply a matter of closing your eyes, giving the body free rein in order to better “see”.
