Les Coz de maïs by Catherine Dagenais-Savard & Sandrine Masse

Sandrine and Catherine are cousins, they work and live together in their community in Wendake. For a short show, they combine their artistic strengths to share their cultural background through the songs and dances of their Wendat nation and their cousin nation Haudenausanee.

PHOSPHOS by Paul Chambers
With this outdoor light installation, Paul Chambers reinvents his PHOSPHOS project for the context of Salon58! Light, treated as a dramatic issue, plays a leading role here; the environment undergoes transformations through a subtle and sensitive manipulation. Like a spectrum, a dancer sometimes drinks from this light source. During this bewitching ceremony, the public is invited to melt into the phosphorescence of the material, to sharpen its eyes. In contemplation or in movement, he crosses the space or observes, he chooses to go out and come back as he pleases. A strange shift takes place, the hitherto unknown territory is tamed. Meditative and hypnotizing. Performers: Lael Stellick, Peter James, Rosie Contant. Outside eye: Timothy Rodrigues.

A citizen creation facilitated by Élise Legrand
Choreographer Élise Legrand presents a 10-minute citizen creation, the result of a week of choreographic creation with the members of the community of Marsoui and the surrounding area. (with the participation of Rachel Thibault, Monique Quesnel, Charlotte Perron, Emma Ponsart, Toufik Kouider)
