FUDGE | Festival universel de danse géniale pour enfants
Mères et mouvements d’enfants
Video installation inspired by children’s movements
April 28 to July 9
Tuesday trough Saturday | Noon to 5 pm
Foreman Art Gallery
As a curator, artist Camila Vásquez invited Marie Claire Forté, mother, dancer, choreographer, writer and translator, to collaborate on a work inspired by children’s movement. In turn, Marie Claire invited other mother dancers to observe their children moving and to recreate their gestures as best they could. Projected onto the windows in the foyer of the Centennial Theatre, images of women dancing alone and virtually together invite us to contemplate a choreographic language extracted from its usual context, rendered by artists observing a child – the other – with curiosity and love.
Artists: Marie Claire Forté with Katie Ewald, Claudia Fancello, Ève Garnier, Lisa Mariko Gelley, Bee Pallomina, Chloé Saintesprit | Curator: Camila Vásquez
