GROUND

  • GROUND explores individual and collective urges, the resonance and resistance among five bodies united by gravity.

    With its cinematic aesthetics that split up time and space, GROUND reveals in the material of the body the nature of our human condition, showing glimpses of everything that, instinctively or physiologically, keeps us together.

    In GROUND, five dancers observe each other as they move in a state of flux, energized by the same movements, isolated or united by the constraints of rebound and coordination. The group becomes an organic whole animated by tensions and impulses, a shifting landscape continuously influenced by a gaze, a gesture, by longing. Obsessive and captivating, the performance evokes the unconscious dynamics and interdependence of a social body.

    GROUND + REBO(U)ND are one of the 200 exceptional projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter Initiative. With this $35M initiative, the Council supports the creation and sharing of the arts in communities across Canada.
