The Ten Commandments. Encounters 1998-2021 : Nicholas Bellefleur and Eric Bernier

Ninth 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.

Greed. Thou shalt not steal. : Nicholas Bellefleur meets Eric Bernier.

Each revisiting their roles, the artists discuss the particularities of dance and theatre and today’s clear interdisciplinarity; they also talk about the quest for meaning – both among artists and audiences – which is manifested differently depending on the discipline. The artists also address moments of grace in performing, experienced through the search for freedom and authenticity.




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.
