Danse Danse - Andrea Peña
Mar 27, 2018Doors: 6 p.m.
Performance: 7 p.m.
In collaboration with the Créateur en Mouvement program and Danse Danse, TD Cultural Tuesdays invite you to discover the premises of Andrea Peña and Artists’s new play, 6.58, the product of a creative residency at Arsenal Contemporary Art Montreal.
Through this new research, the choreographer explores how the flesh and the mind can be governed by external forces. She questions the different aspects of this relation through three tableaux in which five dancers interact, among other things, with an opera singer and a DJ. A true creative laboratory, the evening will immerse spectators in the heart of the approach of Peña who will share, for an evening, a work in full emergence.
ABOUT - ANDREA PEÑA
After dancing with various major Canadian companies, Andrea Peña is now based in Montreal where she founded her company in 2014. Having studied industrial design, the choreographer, originally from Bogotá, thinks of her pieces as installations. She has presented her work at the Canadian Center for Architecture (CCA) and at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA). Engaging in deep encounters between the body, aesthetics and design, the choreographer attaches great importance to working with artists from various backgrounds, thus offering a perpetual dialogue between the different disciplines.
Andrea Peña will be in a creative residency from March 19 to 30, 2018 in our exhibition spaces.
