The choreographer Mélanie Demers, artistic director of the company MAYDAY, makes the scene a platform to examine the role of the artist, and a theater space to meditate on the fate of the world and individuals. Her works, created in collaboration with the core dancers of her company, highlight the shadows of the human condition, taking care not, however, adopt an accusatory tone or assign to a sterile defeatism; resolutely committed, they are both cries for help and calls for change. The name of her company, MAYDAY, it suggests both distress and hope.

Animal Triste is a world creation and co-production of the Canada Dance Festival.
