CINE DANSE-QUEBEC!

Do you have a dancing soul? Sign up for one of the two workshops organized in the framework of Cinédanse Québec 2015. The second edition of this unique Festival, the only one of its kind in the country, will take place from 24th to 27th September, a side event of the exhibition Rebel Bodies on contemporary dance.

 

WORKSHOP LOVE-ISM, FOR ALL!

What difference is there between one form of love and another?

The Israeli choreographer Mor Shani was inspired by Erich Fromm’s book Art of Loving (1956) to imagine Love-ism, a piece that attempts to understand the different forms of love that unite human beings. After presenting his work in the Netherlands, he started collaborating with the Dutch filmmaker Paul Sixta, who directed a film based on it, of a rare beauty. Together, they pursue their creative process in the form of workshops with non-professional dancers. Willing to bring the art of dancing out of the studios and to make it available to everyone, Shani offers a powerful human experience to all those who want to volunteer. Sixta, behind the camera, will capture all the magic moments that this group of strangers will experience through improvisation and experimentation. An opportunity no one should miss.

   •    The workshop is free of charge and will take place over two days, Saturday September 19th from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday September 20th from 1 pm to 5 pm at the Auditorium Roland-Arpin in the Musée de la civilisation ;

   •    Between 15 and 20 participants (beginners or professionals, young or not-so-young);

   •    The workshop is organized within the framework of the screening of Love-ism. Sequences filmed during the workshop may be added to the film.

To sign up for the workshop, please contact the Museum (418) 643-2158.

Leave your name, phone number and e-mail; we will get back to you during the summer.

 

 

WORKSHOP DANCE THE SPRING IN FALL, FOR 60 YEARS OLD AND OVER

Encounter with a choreographer who gives to hear a new tonality in the French dance.

 

Thanks to his long experience in performing arts, an experience that has brought him to work with great artists such as Patrice Chéreau, Pierre Boulez and Ariane Ascaride, the dancer and choreographer Thierry Thieû Niang wishes today to work with strangers to the world of arts. For instance, he works with seniors, poetically glorifying their bodies and personalities. He will lead a workshop based on one of his performances, …Du Printemps!, freely adapted from Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring.

   •    The workshop is free of charge and will take place over three days, from September 25th to September 27th from 10 am to noon in the Rebel Bodies studio;

   •    Between 15 and 20 participants (we wish to welcome an equal number of men and women);

   •    The workshop will take place in the margin of the documentary screening Danser le printemps à l’automne. The screening of the film will take place on early afternoon of Sunday September 27th.
