Dance Performance: Mother Nature

Festival Quartiers Danses

The McCord Museum is pleased to host, once again this year, three performances of the Festival Quartiers Danses. The 2021 edition of the Festival will take place from September 8 to 19.

Mother Nature questions the nature of Man in relation to “Mother Nature.” Through an organic physicality, fluid and connected to the ground, this trio evolves towards mechanical, linear, industrial movement. How do our current lifestyles interfere with our relationship with ourselves, each other and our environment?

The dance performance Mother Nature, by choreographer Emmanuelle Martin, will be presented in the Urban Forest as part of the Festival Quartiers Danses.
Performers: Laura Lelièvre, Constance Aubry and Nicolas Boivin.

The Quartiers Danses Festival has made its mission to democratize contemporary dance in all its forms and hybrids by making it more accessible to all audiences in traditional and unusual venues. The FQD primarily presents shows from local artists, but also frequently invites national and international creators. It adopts a multidisciplinary approach to original dance that comprises presentation, performances, installations, films, exhibits, meetings, discussions, and, last but not least, cultural mediation workshops.
