Dévorer le ciel


A unique physical and emotional constellation.

It starts with an immense sky, like an invitation to expansion and freedom. Then comes the power of the sky over those it covers. Open to the caprices of the world, humans allow themselves to be permeated, transformed by it, under this vault that splinters then recombines. In this constant back and forth, this dialogue between interior and exterior, the quest for the absolute, for meaning and beauty, endlessly unfolds.

In this piece for 6 dancers, Danièle Desnoyers again meets dance head-on, creating a work that defies categorization. After a cycle of fruitful collaborations with artists from diverse disciplines, she now allows the choreographic framework to predominate, weaving a délicate pattern of diverse textures. The work’s score is boldly rhythmic, freewheeling, irrepressible. Desnoyers reveals her urge to “devour” the space and to communicate her deep feelings of humanity.
