Watching dancers move on stage is incredibly captivating. When their movements perfectly synchronize, gradually intensifying like a whirlwind, reaching a peak of synergy, it can become beautifully hypnotic. It’s awe-inspiring to witness the extraordinary capabilities of the human body when dancers perform together in a group, and this season, multiple choreographies will showcase the group's collective strength.   

Dancers will seamlessly connect on stage in Faso Danse Théâtre’s effervescent work that celebrates the value of community strength, in Ballet BC’s BOLERO X, an extraordinary work for 50 dancers accompanied by the NAC Orchestra, or in Virginie Brunelle’s Fables, a piece for 10 dancers celebrating women in their multiplicity and resilience. Catherine Gaudet also offers a rhythmic piece for 5 dancers requiring absolute synchronicity, precision and endurance. And finally, the iconoclastic skaters of  Le Patin Libre will morph into flocks of birds in a dazzling ballet on ice.  

The interplay of bodies, blending and contrasting, synchronizing and diverging, continues to hold an endless fascination. These group pieces will thoroughly captivate you!
