7:30 PM
Maison de la culture du Plateau-Mont-Royal
The maison de la culture du Plateau-Mont-Royal and Festival Accès Asie, in partnership with Maison pour la danse, are pleased to present the dance performance Triangle Courbé, in other words when contemporary dance meets traditional dance. Kim-Sanh Châu, Geneviève Duong and Charo Foo Tai Wei will present personal works followed by an original collective creation.

Funeral dance, by Kim-Sanh Châu in collaboration with Mary St-Amand Williamson, is a ritual for death. The destructive state, past violence and ancestral memory are the dominant themes in this creation. The dancers focus on the dual relation that the performer creates: the first with a past version of herself and the second with the spectator. They explore the capacity of the performative body to become imbued with an energy from the space and the spectator which is then conveyed back to them.

When Two Rivers Meet, by Geneviève Duong accompanied on violin by Sato Matsui, is an expressive and poetic sensory experience that addresses the resurgence of traces left by the memories of past generations. They unite their voices according to two perspectives, one linked to memory and the other to interpretation.

The Beauty Song, by Charro Foo Tai Wei, is inspired by the eponymous poem Jia Rien Qu (The Beauty Song), by the poet Li Ya Nian. Charo proposes a reading through traditional Chinese Long-Sleeved dance.
