La 2e Porte à Gauche is developing a reputation for creating unique scenarios in which artist and spectator connect, and their latest production attains new heights. Four directors and four choreographers have joined forces to tackle the age-old subject of relationships, creating a series of pas de deux that challenge notions of dance/theatre, gender clichés, and intimacy. Performed for small groups during a series of brief encounters in four bedrooms at the ALT Hotel, this who’s who from Montreal’s dance/theatre underworld brings into focus what’s really happening behind closed doors.

Sharing a desire to dissolve boundaries between different dance forms, Canada’s Emmanuel Lê Phan and Sweden’s Elon Höglund joined forces to create works that smoothly meld hip-hop and contemporary dance. The results? Wonderfully intricate partnering, finely honed musicality, and richly dense physicality that takes viewers on a thrilling ride to the very edge of new dance. Sharing the bill are local favourites, The Woods + Ghettosocks, who are creating a brand new work incorporating dance, music, and spoken word. A not-to-be-missed evening of rhythm and beats!
