Project Description

Tara Luz Danse

Les bâtons – Performance

Les bâtons is a creative dance piece inspired by a musical instrument called “Boomwhackers”.  The work is poetic, playful, dynamic, and explores the power of imagination. Through dance, movement and music, the artists combine their ingenuity to transform these colourful objects in clever and unexpected ways, encouraging audiences to think outside the box! Performances are only offered bilingually or in French.

Move Outside the Box! – Workshop

In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to move with the artists of Tara Luz Danse and explore some of the concepts which guided the creation of Les bâtons. Together they will explore dance through various movement games, such as the Mirror, Flocking and Word-Image.  This workshop is suitable for all ages and is a great introduction to the world of creative and contemporary dance.
