The nomadic Cinédanse festival will stop in Sept-Îles, Uashat and Moisie in July

After Montreal, Ottawa, Rouyn-Noranda and Caraquet, the nomadic Cinédanse festival will stop in the Sept-Îles region from July 23 to 28. Founder Sylvain Bleau wants the art of dance to flourish on the banks of the St. Lawrence River and the Moisie River.

The event will feature shows at the Old Post Office in Uashat, workshops and exhibitions, among others. It is organized in collaboration with the Septilienne artist Johanne Roussy, the Musée de la Côte-Nord, the Shaputuan Museum, the City and the Cégep de Sept-Îles. Under the theme: “Healing wounds/Nanatushitishutau”, Cinédanse will also offer “The dance of the faun/Pakutishkuauat nimuat” workshops in pre-festival from May 22 to 25 with New York choreographer Tamar Rogoff.

“What makes the North Shore so rich is that it is far from the major centers and that it is full of heritage of immense value. Music, visual arts, poetry and stories are very present there,” declares the director of La Caravane de Phoebus and producer of Cinédanse Sylvain Bleau.

Among the guest artists, note the Innu poet-storyteller Joséphine Bacon, the choreographer Sylvie Mercier (Tadoussac), the dancer Mikaël Xystra Montminy, the Tam ti delam troupe (Sept-Îles), the performer of Franco-Moroccan origin 2Fik (Montreal ), the filmmakers Thérèse Ottawa (Manawan) and Béatriz Mediavilla (Rouyn-Noranda), the Montrealer Ariane Boulet, the dancers Monique Léger from the Acadian Peninsula and Lana Morton from Ottawa, the New York choreographers and performers Jil Guyon and Karen Bernard , the French artists Olivia Grandville (La Rochelle) and Thierry Thieû Niang (Paris) as well as the choreographer and performer Simone Gomis (Belgium-Senegal).
