Louis-Elyan Martin

Jul 3 - 13, 2019

Performance: Jul 13, 12 - 4 p.m.

In collaboration with Danse Danse, Arsenal Contemporary Art Montreal invites you to discover choreographer Louis-Elyan Martin. From July 3rd to July 13th, Louis-Elyan Martin will invest our spaces for a creative residency. After two weeks of choreographic experimentations, this residence will conclude with an in situ performance of Canto Ostinato, on July 13th. 

Choreographer-performer Louis-Elyan Martin and performer Laurie-Anne Langis embark on an ephemeral journey through time, as they invite the public to dive in a meditative ritual which will confront them to a notion of time that is both collective and individual. 

For four hours, following Dutch composer Simeon Holt Ten’s hypnotic music step-by-step, Canto Ostinato, the duo carries itself in a minimalist trance. In a space-time informed by the surrounding space, the dancers follow, unite, escape, challenge each other and come together… in an infinite walk strewed with variations.
