At the heart of this unique evening, experience L'Outre-rêve
, a multidisciplinary show combining orchestral and electroacoustic creations, dance and vocal art, poetry and visual arts. Presented in a single continuous thread, this show takes the form of an initiatory narrative that explores the relationship between bodies and identities, memories and their transformation into stories.
In a mesmerizing and unrestrained voice, these themes are conveyed by four archetype characters steeped in a mixed Eastern and Western cultural heritage. On stage and beyond, conductor Véronique Lacroix, 9 ECM+ musicians and 3 soloists give life to 4 musical pieces as enigmatic as they are unpredictable, guiding the audience in a dreamlike world that ignores borders.
4 new works by
Annesley Black (Germany, Canada) | Myriam Boucher (Canada) | Snežana Nešić (Germany, Serbia) | Symon Henry (Canada)
