Through the collaboration of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Goethe-Institut Montreal and fabrik Potsdam – Internationales Zentrum für Tanz und Bewegungskunst, Berlin artists Mirjam Sögner (choreography) and Sandra Blatterer (light design) received a residency in the studios of Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique. 

During this residency, they used foam as a performative agent which they animated, used as a landscape and transformed with light and visual projections. They questioned the way the body can be part of this slowly vanishing light sculpture, which exists with its own qualities of movement.
 
With this video by Emmanuelle Boileau we invite you to revisit the evening of the presentation of the residency at Montreal's center for contemporary dance, Circuit Est on October 26, 2017.
