The Ten Commandments. Encounters 1998-2021 : Jean-François Duke and Patrick Lamothe

Sixth 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.

Illusion. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. : Jean-François Duke meets Patrick Lamothe.

The artists consider the massive challenge of this role: opening the piece, alone – even supported by the other dancers’ energy – in power and simplicity, and even humility – to use Harold’s words. An interview that reveals the gestation of the role, the desire to unveil the humanity beneath the rock star, the need to be fully present to what unfolds




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.
