Chantal Caron at FIFA

Dance, nature and emotion in Chantal Caron’s short film at FIFA.
Glace crevasse et dérive (Extraits)


Directed by Albert Girard and choreographed by Chantal Caron, Glace, crevasse et dérive is a metaphorical piece about death and the perpetual cycle of life. Set along the shores of the St. Lawrence River, the drifting blocks of ice caught in the river’s current represent a timeline. “It’s a story of a couple, a family, a generation, a life,” says Caron. Dancers Karine Gagné and Thomas Casey are featured in the short film.

The thirty-second edition of Festival international du film sur l’art (FIFA) will be hosted in Montréal from March 20 - 30 and will feature more than 270 art films from thirty-four different countries. Glace, crevasse et dérive can be screened on March 21 at the Centre Phi.

Some other new dance-film productions showcasing at the festival include Mario Rouleau’s adaptation of Marie Chouinard’s Le Sacre du Printemps, performed by the fourteen dancers of her company to celebrate the centenary of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring and Xavier Curnillon’s short film of Paul-André Fortier’s Perception, in which dancer Simon Courchel disappears and simultaneously reappears in the dark.
