Presse:

Sous la forme hybride d’une installation d’arts visuels et du concertélectroacoustique,anOthernous transporte dans une quatrième dimension post-féminine àl’atmosphère enveloppante et paradoxalement déstabilisante. Un bijou chorégraphiqueexpérimental qui ravira les amateurs d’arts visuels et de musiqueunderground. -Le Devoir

Sous le titre d’une énigmatique altérité,AnOther, désignant aussi la répétition, Dana Gingrasplonge la salle dans une obscurité profonde et une ambiance sonore insistante, puissante,férocement martelée. L’espace résonne d’une avalanche de sons, de rythmes frappés, éraflés,cadencés, qui vous traversent le corps, vous font vibrer sur place, vous noient dans un puitssombre directement relié aux martèlements de votre cœur. -Jeu

 


 



FRONTERA

'Frontera' (border, frontier): a real or imaginary dividing line; the extreme limit of
understanding in a particular area.

In an era of aggressive nationalism and corporate mass surveillance, the human body has never been rendered so visible, subject to increasingly invasive forms of industrial-scale oversight and processing.

Borders are boundaries, but they're also processes, liminal spaces where despair, desire and neoliberal economic imperatives meet the obscure(d) operations of power. Surveillance technologies represent an advancing frontier of knowledge and control, monitoring movement, defining identities and gathering data. Increasingly, the border moves with the body, and seeks to organise and orchestrate its passage through the world.

With a light-based scenography by United Visual Artists (UVA) which articulates the dialogue between choreography, architecture and live music by Fly Pan Am and field
recordings by Godspeed’s Dave Bryant, FRONTERA's 9 dancers navigate spaces of inclusion and exclusion; their bodies mapped in high resolution, their destinies unresolved.

As the public and private realms are consumed by monitoring technologies and tests of legitimacy, what space remains for the unruly, ungovernable body?
