DanceWorks presents Sylvain Émard Danse’s
Fragments – Volume I
Choreography by Sylvain Émard
DanceWorks, Toronto's longest-running contemporary dance series, presents Sylvain Émard Danse with the Toronto premiere of Fragments – Volume I, four dance works set in four contrasting worlds, choreographed by the award-winning Sylvain Émard of Montreal. Fragments – Volume I runs for ONE NIGHT ONLY – Saturday, March 3, 8PM – at Harbourfront Centre's Enwave Theatre.
Intense and often surprising, veteran actress Monique Miller slips majestically into this work, contrasting with the raw energy of dancers Laurence Ramsay, Manuel Roque and Catherine Viau.
Sylvain Émard is a proponent of mixing genres, navigating with ease from one milieu to another – film, theatre, the visual arts and opera. Émard is recognized for his complex and refined choreographic vocabulary, exploring the territory of human nature through the power of movement. Fragments - Volume I is a collage of miniatures - a veritable patchwork of insistent urgency with three solos and a duo conveying the complexity and vulnerability of the individual.
"As a choreographer, Emard never disappoints, and his latest piece Fragments - Volume I is a masterpiece."
