Au Delà de l'Absence

Performance by Thomas Demay, Le Mai Anh, Sébastien Ly, Lisa Robert, Tran Hoang Yen

 

Sébastien Ly’s choreography is unique in its ability to stimulate synergy between the artist and the dancing space as well as graceful interaction between dancers and the public audience. Five dancers will invite the audience to walk freely through different spaces and create their own story based on their encounters with the artists. The alternate quintet, trios and duets of dancers thus highlights the characteristics of the areas they will be walking through. The audience will be invited to interact with the artists. It is definitely a once-in-a-life-time experience.
