Suite canadienne, a demonstration
During his artist residency at the Musée d’art de Joliette, choreographer Adam Kinner revisits Ludmilla Chiriaeff’s Suite canadienne, a masterwork designed by the founder of Les Grands Ballets canadiens.
By re-performing that cultural moment today, and rethinking the resonance that Chiriaeff’s work still has, Kinner invites us to look at Québec’s history through another lens.
Following a week-long residency at the MAJ, Adam Kinner will present a performance of Suite canadienne, in collaboration with a group of dancers composed of Hanako Hoshimi-Caines, Louise Michel Jackson, Kelly Keenan, Justin de Luna and Mulu Tesfu. Coming from different disciplinary and training backgrounds, the dancers compose a heterogeneous group that uses intentional misreading and hypnotism to approach the original work.
