Van Grimde Corps Secrets

Symphonie 5.1 By Philip Szporer Symphonie 5.1

Multimedia experimentation is the driving force behind Symphonie 5.1, a platform for applying video projections as a light source, working to reveal dancers’ bodies, or a sense of them, rather than showing other pre-recorded images alongside them.

Le corps en question(s)²/The Body in Question(s)²

In a holographic whirl of live movement, installation and video, curator and choreographer Isabelle Van Grimde contemplates the status of the physical body in an increasingly virtual world.

This May marked the inaugural program of the Montréal-based dance and theatre event, Festival TransAmériques.

Here are their evocative and emphatic impressions.
