Featuring the National Arts Centre Orchestra.
A pulsating beat of humanity in our social symphony perpetually under construction, this new work by choreographer and artistic director Rhodnie Désir unfurls a storm of bodies, sound compositions and immersive visual projections inspired by demographic and scientific data.
This large-scale production featuring music and dance artists will transform the stage into a huge heart that invites the audience to become aware of these rhythmic phenomena. The tension of a dancer–musician duet, a decagon of violins in an accelerating accompaniment to the plural bodies of Rhodnie Désir in balance, the tremolos of dancers in the orchestra pit silently beating out the rhythm: the collective result will burst forth like an ode to the power of the heart.
