Fall 2018 : TD Cultural Tuesdays x Danse Danse

Montreal, September 19, 2018

 

MONTREAL : Arsenal Art Contemporary, in collaboration with Danse Danse and TD Bank Group, announces the return of TD Cultural Tuesdays for the fall 2018, with a Focus : Dance & Creative Research. Composed of three residencies, each coupled with a TD Cultural Tuesday event, this special season aims to offer a unique look on the dance creative process.

Since 2015, Arsenal Art Contemporary allows you to discover local talents by creating partnerships with various artistic and cultural organizations. This fall, we are pleased to reiterate our partnership with Danse Danse to offer you an eclectic and eloquent experience of choreographic art. The program will be punctuated by artistic residencies by Tentacle Tribe, La Otra Orilla + guest artist for OFF-CINARS and Kim-Sanh Châu, who will occupy our space to further develop and present their explorations.  Is the body, in a perpetual quest of spatial understanding, defined by its dynamism or by its static outline? The relationship of a body – a being – to its environment must be tirelessly questioned, and that is what the artists of Danse Danse aim to do this fall at Arsenal Art Contemporary.

Founded in 1998, Danse Danse is involved in the development and diffusion of contemporary dance by local and international artists. For this 21st season, the distributor uses our collective memories to weave the narrative of its performances and look in a progressive way at political and identity matters that shape our humanity and our quests for meaning. By promoting synergies between disciplines, the creation proposed by Danse Danse combines visual arts, theater and music to physicality in order to present unique and diversified works. By letting themselves be inspired by the uniqueness of Arsenal Art Contemporary, the dancers and choreographers will be creating a transdisciplinary exchange with the public.
