La Goddam Voie Lactée

MAYDAY/Mélanie Demers | CA

Share this show

In the beginning there was a big bang. And dance too? Yes, the Canadian choreographer Mélanie Demers proves. In La Goddam Voie Lactée – or The Goddamn Milky Way – five women create universes and make them disappear again with the help of dance, spoken word, theatre and music. But the desire to form a group remains.

Location Verkadefabriek/Grote Zaal
Running time 75 min.
Genre Dance

A work that is at turns dramatic, humorous, grotesque, and poetic, forming a fragmented but solid artistic whole that exhibits total commitment.
