While we await a return to the theater, the Quebec dance company Cas Public presents its piece The Monsters live from the Agora de la danse de Montréal.

THE MONSTERS

The Monsters is production in semidarkness from whose shadows emerge the monsters that inhabit our childhood imagination, the most disturbing of which continue to haunt us as we age. Together they conjure a universe where darkness and light synergistically interact and converse. Light, lighting, shadows, reflections, ghostlike colours: these intangible forces come together and sculpt the dancing bodies, transforming the performers into alchemists who have the power to bring light out of darkness. Immersed in the atmospheric music of the Montreal trio Dear Criminals, The Monsters twists the known into the unknown; the familiar becomes strange and the disturbing once again becomes comforting.

The Monsters is a creation of Cas Public in co-production with Lucie Bazzo and  l'Agora de la danse. This creation has benefited of a creation residencies : Agora de la danse  (Montreal, Canada), Royal Opera House (London, United Kingdom), Teatralia (Madrid, Spain) and Théâtre Paul Eluard (Bezons, France).
