Pluton

La 2e Porte à Gauche, Danse-Cité and Agora de la danse By Philip Szporer Pluton

At the heart of Pluton (French for Pluto) is something quite unique. If the former planet Pluto is now an allegorical term for being ruled out, these here are dance artists who are not okay with being forgotten about – they are speaking up.

Soif

O Vertigo By Philip Szporer Soif

Thirty years of existence in a dance company’s life is more than a notable marker; it’s an achievement to celebrate and a time to pause and reflect on how the company’s dances are resonating with younger generations. Ginette Laurin’s O Vertigo hit this milestone this year, and delivered the world premiere of Soif to an appreciative hometown crowd.

Soif

Ginette Laurin premieres new work, Soif, for O Vertigo’s thirtieth anniversary.
