Drawing its inspiration from all possible futures, WOULD is a meditation on potentiality, utopia, and our mania for projecting ourselves into the future. Fuelled by the energy of powerful dancers, WOULD is a reflection on the failures, falls and miscues that mark our paths.

Original Lighting: Alexandre Pilon-Guay. Music: Joshua Van Tassel. Technical direction: Alexandre Péloquin. Voice work: Sabrina Reeves Production: MAYDAY and firstthingsfirst. Presented in collaboration with the Conseil des arts de Montréal. For this piece, Marc Boivin received the 2014 Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding Performance—Male.
