Neither an acoustic nor a totally choreographic work, in turn a solo, duet and trio – and sometimes all of these, or more, at the same time – Duos pour corps et instruments is based on the notion of the encounter. First that of Desnoyers with certain dancers who have left their mark on her work: the superb Sophie Corriveau, AnneBruce Falconer and Siôned Watkins. Next, with sound designer Nancy Tobin, with whom she is pursuing her research on an acoustic material/mode that was first developed five years ago for Concerto grosso pour corps et surface métallique. And finally, in a slightly more instinctive and playful manner, between the body and its audio and videographic extensions: close-ups, out-of-focus shots, etc.

Danièle Desnoyers would like to acknowledge the invaluable collaboration of the dancers in the creative process of this work.
Duos pour corps et instruments is a co-production of Le Carré des Lombes and Montreal’s Contemporary Art Museum (residency project).
