Dancing The Treasure
The choreographic initiation workshops orchestrated prior to the show Le Trésor aim to raise awareness among young people about contemporary dance and the process of choreographic creation. In addition to putting the children in contact with professional artists, the workshops offer a practical apprenticeship in teamwork and give young people the opportunity to exercise their critical and/or aesthetic sense.
Imagined in the form of a game integrating different activities, the workshop seeks to create parallels between play, song, music and choreography. Through movement, the participants have to experiment, to structure, to give rhythm to space and sounds. Bringing out songs. Images. A universe.
A series of workshops accompanied a creation residency in the summer of 2019 thanks to the partnership between the Salle de spectacles Desjardins de New Richmond and Spect’Art Rimouski. In addition, an ambitious program of mediation activities was set up in parallel with the first performances of the show at the Cinquième Salle at Place des Arts, from March 4 to 7, 2020. Storytelling, treasure hunts, choreographic games, shadow theatre, collage, all this and more during the school break week.
With Le Trésor, make way for games, laughter and poetry!
