> News: petites danses

petites danses is a collection of short dances with vast imagination.


Thirteen performers. Four musical compositions. Eight dances. Each a world of its own.


Created by celebrated choreographer and connoisseur of contemporary music, Marie-Josée Chartier’s petites danses is a study in perception. Set to the music of Linda C. Smith, Rodney Sharman, James Tenney and Nick Storring, Chartier creates unique choreographic worlds that shape and re-shape our perception of sound. Those four musical works are imagined through moving bodies twice - resulting into eight distinct choreographies, inviting us to witness how movement allows us to see the beauty and complexity of each musical composition.


Like a short story, each dance is succinct and multi-layered.
