15 X AT NIGHT: Dance in the urban landscape

Choreographer Paul-André Fortier discusses why he created a dance performance for the outdoors. "Dancing outdoors is a completely different experience from performing on stage." explains Fortier. "On stage, you’re somewhat removed. You try to conceal the effort involved. But in this setting, the audience can see everything." 

At night, cityscapes take on a distinctive yet mysterious charm – bodies shiver in the cool, silent air, darkness alters our perceptions. This is the mystery that 15 X AT NIGHT explores, transforming the familiar with a unique mixture of minimalism and sensuality.

15 X AT NIGHT was presented by the Canada Dance Festival in association with the NAC’s Canada Scene.
