City Thread is here

Our new show takes over Place des Arts starting August 29th!

Involving 40 dancers and as many participants as the Esplanade of Place des Arts can accommodate, dance, music, and architecture come together in a multidisciplinary outdoor performance. Members of the public, phone in hand, choose to follow one or another group of dancers on designated itineraries, guided by an exclusive smartphone application.

Although hundreds of spectators may actively participate in the performance, headsets allow each one to experience the moment in a private space thanks to a unique soundtrack that unfolds as the spectator winds through the public space and the dancers’ bodies. Simultaneously, multiple private experiences are taking place in tandem as the performance is in continual movement. Randomness, decision-making, and the onlookers are also integral parts of the experience.

Esplanade of Place des Arts, from August 29th to September 10th at 5:15 and 7 PM.

No shows on Monday. September 2nd performances are at 1 PM and 3 PM.

Meeting point is outside, in front of the Musée d’arts contemporain.

The show is 30 min and free.
