The site-specific performances and installations directed by choreographer Noémie Lafrance explore human movements in man-made landscapes, creating a performance language that interacts with the environment and the audience. Each creation uses an existing indoors/outdoors public site or piece of urban architecture as the setting and inspiration for the performance. The choreography constructs narratives through the movement of people in their real surroundings.The material is choreographed and rehearsed on site with the participation of large casts of performers and collaborating artists. The creation process pursues the intrinsic meaning of place for its historical, symbolic and energetic values and explores how places are marked by the "life" of people and objects and vice versa. The final product is imbued with the atmosphere of the space and reflects on the enhanced possibilities of live work performed outside of the black-box theater. Between stage and reality, the performance unfolds as an intimate and unpredictable voyage for traveling viewers.Sens Productions
