ICONE POP – The music of Dvo?ák mixes with the auras of the Virgin Mary and Beyoncé to invent a kind of Barbie doll under the influence – both divine and disposable. Part of Stabat Mater series of choreographic commissions, Icône Pop marks the meeting between choreographer and performer Mélanie Demers and composer and singer Mykalle Bielinski.
To DO To Dont – A solo, a duet. With a blanket, with hair. Through comfort, protection, hostility and weight, the work touches on being enough. Trying to get out of bed, take it in, keep it out, change, or make change. The possibility to hold sorrows of the world, and one’s own, while not forgetting the day to day. There is a lot to do. And a lot to don’t.
