Paradoxe Mélodie by choreographer Danièle Desnoyers poses the choreographic question “How can dance be projected into life and how can life be reflected in a dancing body?” Desnoyers’ creations evoke a subtle back-and-forth movement between order and chaos. A reflection of the world’s duality, her choreography oscillates between rigour and extravagance, tension and release, delicacy and unbridled energy. This world premiere performance features a live musical score by harpist Éveline Grégoire-Rousseau, composer Nicolas Bernier and a cast of 10 performers.

Cast: Tal Adler Arieli, Karina Champoux,  Molly Johnson, Jason Martin, Brice Noeser, Pierre-Marc Ouellette, Nicolas Patry, Clémentine Schindler, Anne Thériault, Élise Vanderborght and harpist Éveline Grégoire-Rousseau
