Choreographer, Benoît Lachambre and the six versatile artists of Montréal Danse take the audience on a wild ride in Prismes. Refracted, intriguing images are highlighted in a world of saturated colour and architectural physicality. At once beautiful, playful and grotesque the bodies revealed through light and shadow, stimulate our senses, cast doubt on our perceptions and highlight the beautiful mischievous world of the choreographer.

“Prismes, with its playful spirit, its orgy of colour, its outrageous soundtrack and its exuberant dancers is a magnificent work.”

When: Wednesday, June 11th, 7:00 p.m.
