Kimberley is interested in the potential of the body ; it's capacity to hold and sustain presence and generate movement and sound from a deep and visceral place. She draws on themes such as climate change and human empathy as source material for creation. Kimberley has been performing professionally for 15 years (Itzik Galili, Marie Chouinard, Frédérick Gravel, Dana Gingras, Alan Lake, etc.).

Caravane solos is a program of short dance solos presented this summer in the Charlevoix region. The project offers a one-on-one artistic experience with spectators seated only a few metres from the performers. Each solo is presented to a single spectator or to a family group.

 

Spread out over a 3-week period with 90 performances per week, Caravanes solos features intimate shows, each 8 to 13 minutes in length. This is an opportunity to experience a unique encounter with high calibre dance works in an exceptional but also secure environment.

Caravane solos presents excerpts from a wide range of renowned works that reflect the artistic and cultural diversity of contemporary Quebec dance. From hip-hop to contemporary by way of krump and dance-theatre, and from the sweet and gentle to raw energy and power, the program offers something for everyone.

Dance lovers and the curious will be delighted by the simplicity and acuity of this dance experience!

Embracing and fully inhabiting a realm of light and silence, of darkness and noise, the Krump pioneer 7Starr probes the artistic range of this urban dance. A moment of communion that is both explosive and vulnerable.

ANIMA / DARKROOM

To the vibrant sound of Bach violins, a virtuoso performer explores solitude as virgin territory that reveals the depths of being. A minimalist piece of perfect mastery that radiates tenderness.

Pulsations, tremors, fiery movement. A body surrenders to dark jubilation. A solo of corrosive energy that gives rise to a stunning poetry, sweeping away all gloom and doom.
