M U E S est une pièce chorégraphique multidisciplinaire célèbre la diversité des corps et des expériences sensorielles en impliquant la danse intégrée. La démarche artistique, nourrie par des créateurs européens et québécois, est centrée sur les processus de transformations corporelles et identitaires à travers les vécus de la peau. Dans un voyage au cœur d'une installation poétique, une danse évolue au fil des paysages visuels et sonores, et invite via le mouvement à plonger en soi.
Direction artistique : Claire Cherriere, Pépite
M U E S - FROM AUGUST 8 TO AUGUST 12, 2022
