I am happy to announce that I have been selected to be part and create a 30min new piece for dance festival Quartiers Danses 2017, which took place on September 10th at Cinquième Salle, Place des Arts.
My new piece is called Constellation.
In Constellation, rising choreographer Eva Kolarova uses the imagery of the night sky to reflect on loneliness in a world of frantic entanglement. The frenzied nature of our cities, our countries and our own web of anxieties cause us to lose sight of the larger picture; the great expanse of stars above. She faces our feelings of solitude and insignificance head-on, reminding us to look up at that cradle of constellations; that map of history and civilization which connects us all.

Festival Quartier Danses 2017 in Montréal, Canada.
The Quartiers Danses Festival has made it its mission to democratize contemporary dance and all its forms and hybrids by making it more accessible to all audiences in traditional and unusual venues. The FQD mostly offers shows from local artists, but also from national and international creators. It adopts a multidisciplinary approach of original dance that comprises show presentation, performances, installations, films, exhibits, meetings and discussions, and, lastly, cultural mediation workshops.
