SINK: new solo
at Transatlantique Montréal / Festival Quartiers Danse
September 18 at 8 pm
Maison de la culture Côte-des-Neiges
5290, chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges
Info: 514 872 6889
Choreography and performance: Lina Cruz
Music: Philippe Noireaut
This solo evolves in relation to a sink (as a non-functional detached object). As Lina states herself: " Props are my intimate partners in solo work,
SINK is no exception... I found my SINK partner in the garbage, in an alley, a couple of years ago. It was love at first SINK!!! He waited patiently in
a locker in my basement, now he is out and leading the ball!"
An excerpt of SINK was presented in December 2011 in Toronto by Older & Reckless, a program presented by Claudia Moore and Moonhorse
Dance Theatre. A further developed version was presented on June 2, 2102 at the Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival.
SINK was created thanks to a research grant from the Quebec Arts Council and a production grant from the Montreal Arts Council.
New Group Piece
In the fall 2012, Lina Cruz will be begin creating a new group piece (title still to be determined). This new work will premiere in Montreal at Agora
de la danse in the fall 2013 and will be one of the projects celebrating Fila 13’s 10th anniversary.
Thanks to the Fiscal Sponsorship Program of Conseil des arts de Montréal, Fila 13 Productions will be holding its first fundraising activities along
the 2012/2013 season. Two cozy happy hour gatherings, including wine tasting and open rehearsals of excerpts of new work will take place along
this period. The exact dates will be announced in September 2012.
