  • La danse sur les routes du Québec
    • November 24, 2011, 3:00 pm
  • Total duration: 60 min
  • Turning away from the starkness of reality and getting lost in the unconscious. Lifting the corner of your mouth to smile ironically at the absurd changeability of time…

    Three couples? More like six characters, who meet and then dive into new planes of existence, where they can explore space by projecting themselves into random states of suspension and falling. On stage, the performers invent pas de deux, creating slowed-down, yet sensual conflicts that measure out one’s resistance - but also attraction - to the other. With humour and fantasy, Dunn dissects this reverie, which unfolds in a symbolic universe influenced by Brontë-like romance and set to the deconstructed and altered music of Frédéric Chopin.

    “Dunn is able to infuse her romantic vision… with audacious irony, odd beauty and absurd sight gags. Dunn is able to enunciate the contrarieties of experience and delve into the excess of sensation.” - Philip Szporer, The Hour
