Dancers from Montreal AND dancers form our company will be part of the cast to remount KLOROFLY. 100Lux has been doing their thing for over 6 years now supporting promoting and leveling up urban dance and putting up platforms for urban dance artists from styles such as hip hop, popping, bboying, house, locking, krump, waacking. We’ll be sharing the stage for three nights with company Ör Pür. Come through if you’re in Montreal and you want to see something solid on a REALLY really nice stage AKA Place des Arts.
On the menu
Finding influences in the 1964 Japanese film Seven Samurai , in which warriors must regain their spark when forced to work together to survive, the play embodies the iconic style of Gadfly, which is rooted in the physical aspect of urban and contemporary dances, as well as the balance between creativity and entertainment.
Choreographers – Artistic Directors: Apolonia Velasquez and Ofilio Sinbadinho
Ör Pür (Montréal)
Simply fiction of the imagination or is it reality and ultimately fate? Do we have power over the Zodiak or is it the power of the Zodiak that defines us?
Choreographer – Artistic Director: Cindy Mc Auliffe
