In My Body by Crazy Smooth It is said that the bravest thing a dancer can do is grow old – for a b-boy or a b-girl, the experience is approaching heroic. In keeping with hip-hop culture, b-boys and b-girls present a façade of confidence and invincibility as they engage in battles to prove their value and establish their dominance. The resulting vocabulary is one of the most physically demanding and visually impressive of the dance genres and leaves no room for the expression of vulnerability. With In My Body, dancer and choreographer Crazy Smooth brings together an intergenerational group of dancers and an international creative team for an intensely athletic investigation of the evolution of self and the effects of aging on street dancers. Performance in French. In collaboration with Festival des Arts de Saint-Sauveur and Maison de la culture de Sainte-Anne-des-Monts. Bright Red by Nolan Murray “Bright Red” is a contemporary solo based on Laurie Anderson’s piece of the same name. The solo was choreographed by Charles-Alexis Desgagnés, a professional dancer from Quebec City who stands out for his creativity and his ability to push the boundaries of movement. The number highlights the quality of the dancer’s movement and his ability to captivate an audience. From this perspective, the music does not control the choreography; on the contrary, the choreography directs the music.
