Choreo Chats: Mélanie Demers on Animal Triste
October 23 at 7pm
Arts curator and producer Timea Wharton-Suri interviews Canadian choreographer and founder of MAYDAY dance company, Mélanie Demers, about finding inspiration in storytelling and literature. In this pre-recorded interview, Demers will discuss her creative process, and how the book Sapiens, by Israeli author Yuval Noah Harari, inspired the choreographic language demonstrated in her work Animal Triste (which was presented live as part of Harbourfront Centre’s Torque 2018-19 season). This event is part of the Choreo Chats series, exploring the potential relationships between dance and storytelling, and presented in partnership with Harbourfront Centre.
