surFace Dance: Mixed Program

Event Details


surFace Dance in collaboration with Collectif HAT and Xavier Richard.

The project revolves around two series of 100 one-minute site-specific improvised dance videos (100 videos x 1-minute x 2 series = 100x1x2). Dancer Jalianne Li filmed and posted them on social media as she travelled around Canada and the United States in 2018 and while she was confined to her house and her yard during the lockdown in 2020.

Faced with new difficulties and limitations, such as the restriction of space, social unrest and isolation during the pandemic, 100x1x2 asks the question: how can we overcome what life throws at us?


surFace Dance in collaboration with Mathieu FRACA Francoeur.

An experimental contemporary dance work inspired by the news overload that we experience on a daily basis. The news enrages us, invades us, depresses us, suffocates us, incites us to act. How do we deal with this constant bombardment?

With a newspaper costume designed by visual artist Mathieu FRACA Francoeur, this solo dance piece examines our relationship to the news through the literal metaphor that only newsprint can offer: from the heaviness of the words on its pages to the lightness of the material itself to the transformational capacity of paper.
