VIVARIUM: Born out of hunger for light and wind and ethical artmaking, this slowly unfolding performance is a site-sensitive process. It’s a playful “soft manifesto” that began in the alleyways of Hochelaga. In this indoor iteration, the Vivarium inhabits the corridors surrounding the Espace Orange, where spectators are encouraged to wander and linger. Two dancers oscillate limbs and torsos, whisper, and compost within a pop-up installation of objects gleaned from and imposed on the site. A scenographer “gardens” these materials, while a musician composes a live digital and acoustic soundscape. Although this problematic utopia eventually perishes… it may come back to life. BOXHER: Inspired by the endangered state of bears and their changing environments, this work explores the will to escape the confines of one’s space. A sense of progression is achieved through the sounds of the performer’s amplified breath and beating heart linked through an electronic monitor to a synthesizer. Her half-animal half-human presence, unrestrained and organic, elicits an engagement from onlookers. As she adapts to change, she is transformed.
