Free dance show at Carré 150

On December 7th at 7 p.m., Diffusion Momentum, through its Artère program, provides an opportunity for everyone to discover the possibilities of the world of contemporary dance by presenting Èbe to the public for free. Presented as part of the Hydro-Québec Culture series, this show is a dance and acoustic installation that brings together flamenco dancer Sarah Bronzard, voice performer Patrick Saint-Denis, and five instrumental accordions on stage.

With a brilliant blending of dance and robotics, this performance proves how much fun this system can be in so many ways and it never ceases to amaze us.

about the offer

Characters in their own right, these robot accordions evoke human existence and oppose a certain evolution in the representation of the body. Ibi, which means “receding tide,” is also concerned with the phenomenon of tides, whose oscillations excite an enormous breath. After metaphorizing what is revealed when the water recedes, Èbe explores the dimension of communication in breathing. The unconscious conditioning of accordion breathing, like the hypnotic effect of the sea, reveals the power beyond us and guides us beyond our individual questions.

An opportunity to learn more about artists and their creative process

From the beginning, the show will begin with a presentation of the robotics research that led up to the show. The artists will also provide some clues to understanding the techniques used in the show. Highly appreciated by the public, this audiovisual introduction allows you to plunge into the poetics of the work without worrying about its mechanical aspect. A discussion will follow the performance during which the audience will be invited to discuss and question the artists.
