Take this dance

En Coulisses de Tangente-En

Eagerly awaited by Montreal’s young professionals, artsScene’s upcoming “En coulisse” event will partner with Tangente to create a behind the scenes introduction into the world of contemporary dance. This exclusive activity will be held on November 22nd in the Studio Hydro-Québec at the Monument National, from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

Guests will be treated to a dance performance and behind the scenes access with up and coming Quebec artist, Raphaëlle Perrault, followed by the New York based Brian Brooks, in his fourth show at Tangente. While Perrault’s Rôleplay features an atmosphere of electro-formalism, pulsating music and a quartet of female dancers experimenting with a repetitive phrase from fresh angles, Brooks’ breathtaking Big City, Motor explores the physics of bodies in perpetual motion, contrasting aspects of formalist postmodern dance, physical sports, parkour and street dance.

After the show, guests will be able to chat directly with the artists, an opportunity to share their reactions and questions.

Faithful to its origins for more than 30 years, TANGENTE is a dedicated to experimental contemporary dance. To know more about the artists who will perform during this evening, visit www.tangente.qc.ca.
