The Ten Commandments. Encounters 1998-2021 : Ariane Voineau and Maud Simoneau

Seventh sequence of a satellite project in collaboration with Espace Perreault Transmissions chorégraphiques.

To encourage reflection on transmission and memory, and to honour the participation of dancers in the creative process, The Ten commandments. Encounters 1998-2021 reunites the original and current dancers, who will talk about the work, its meaning and its score.

Intrusion. Thou shalt not commit adultery. : Ariane Voineau meets Maud Simoneau.

From this commandment, viewers retain the spirit and power that the two dancers drew from within, in response to the wound of abandonment. A conversation about a role that is both raw and sensual, yin and yang, where artists no longer define themselves by gender – reflecting the times and the choreographer’s work. It is also a look back at the choreographic writing, inspired largely by emotions that guide the movement and dialogue with the dancers.




This project is made possible with the support of Canada Council for the Arts, Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, Entente de développement culturel de la Ville de Québec, Conseil des arts de Montréal and Département de danse de l’UQAM.
