Extract of "Spring"
Inspired by Gaston Miron's poems
Fusing the percussive vocabulary of Québec's step-dancing to fluid contemporary movements, Rapaillé is a multidimensional work exploring a wide range of emotions. A work that is at once powerful and tinged with urban poetry, performed by the ensemble of five dancers and two musicians.
With an acute sense of rhythm and synchronicity, the experienced artists of [ZØGMA] offer an enthralling evening that redefines the limits of percussive dance.
