Ouvrir la boîte

December 9, 2020
Production

For Ouvrir la boîte, Lise Gagnon invited close to 20 dance practitioners (dancers, choreographers and researchers) to examine the choreographic toolkits from a meta perspective by opening them, interrogating them and unpacking them, in order to view them from different angles and explore their immense potential.

This book offers a description and discussion of the choreographic toolkits, along with reflections on the documentation of dance.

An impressive cast took part in this exploration: Clarisse Bardiot, Lucie Boissinot, Ginelle Chagnon, Danièle Desnoyers, Geneviève Ethier, Lise Gagnon, Lucie Grégoire, Kim Henry, Anne-Laure Jean, Brigitte Kerhervé, Catherine Lavoie-Marcus, Nasim Lootij, Alexandre Michaan, Sophie Michaud, Katya Montaignac, Josée Plamondon, Isabelle Poirier, Romy Snauwaert and Marie Tissot.
