Quand tu me regardes: A theatrical dance with endless play possibilities

NAC French Theatre’s Enfance/jeunesse series continues with a mobile ball that will remind the whole family of the beauty of being oneself


December 11, 2023 – OTTAWA (Canada) – What’s better, amid the frenzy of December, than taking some time off to dream together? Quand tu me regardes [When you look at me] unleashes vibrating bodies and wheelchairs on stage, taking your imagination with them. Three impressive performers twirl their super machines, dance with them, break them into pieces so that they become puppets, light wheels, disco robots... what else? There are no limits here!

Corpuscule Danse dedicates itself to developing inclusive dance—an artistic endeavour that unites performers with and without disabilities, whether visible or invisible. On December 16 and 17 in the NAC Azrieli Studio: original music and songs with choreography by Guillaume Chouinard (assisted by Georges-Nicolas Tremblay) featuring bodies in unison highlighted by individual movement as each one reveals its own story; Quand tu me regardes will make the senses your children (age 6+) dance too. It’s poetic, it’s funny, it’s beautiful!
