La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines

MAYDAY takes over La Chapelle in December for the anticipated return of WOULD in Montreal.  

Drawing its inspiration from all possible futures, WOULD is a meditation on potentiality, utopia, and our mania for projecting ourselves into the future. Imagining the best, fearing the worst. And adapting as best we can to the present. Fuelled by the energy of two powerful dancers, WOULD is a reflection on the failures, falls and miscues that inevitably mark our imperfect paths. Marc Boivin and Kate Holden confront each other like two wild beasts warily approaching each other.
