LUMINESCENCE, dancing Turner

Choregraphy : Harold Rhéaume with the collaboration of the interpreters

Premiere : avril 2021

For the third year of the project Dancing at the museum, Le fils d’Adrien danse presents LUMINESCENCE, dancing Turner, a contemporary dance creation choreographed by Harold Rhéaume and a cinematographic work by Nelly-Ève Rajotte that put into perspective the experience of the sublime from a selection of the exhibition catalogue of Turner et le sublime.

This proposition of artistic codirectors Harold Rhéaume and Caroline Simonis wishes, through the mediation of movement, to investigate and expose this state of the body beyond representation. A strange intrusion that threatens or delights the one exposed to it.

A choreographic and cinematographic work created in resonance with the international exhibition Turner and the sublime. This work is a Le fils d’Adrien danse production copresented by the F.A.D. and the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec.
