An award-winning choreographer and multidisciplinary artist based in Montreal, Mélanie Demers dives into the political and the poetic with works which aim to fuse dance, theatre, literature and music with explosive effect. La Goddam Voie Lactée is her response to the harshness of the world: a pagan mass, both celebration and challenge, inspired by the constant mourning that marks our current age. Five women deploy their bodies, voices and instruments. Reflecting on the need for solidarity in the face of adversity, this work’s purpose is to be an exercise in self-imagination and creativity, and a means of finding our bearings in this imperfect world.
