The Festival Quartier Danses (FQD), les Productions des pieds des mains and the PHI Foundation for Contemporary Art are pleased to launch COMM_UNION, a digital artwork. The event will take place on Zoom.
COMM_UNION is a digital artwork created by Les Productions des pieds des mains with dancers Antony Dolbec, Mario Diamond, Jacinthe Giroux and Jean-François Hupé. The piece was directed by Olivier Arseneault under the artistic direction of Menka Nagrani. COMM_UNION is a dance interpretation of Lee Bae’s artwork from the exhibition UNION, currently presented at the PHI Foundation.
This event will involve a viewing of the work COMM_UNION, followed by a discussion about the project with Menka Nagrani (artistic director), Olivier Arseneault (director) and Marie-Hélène Lemaire (Head of Education at the PHI Foundation), as well as Catherine Pelletier-Voyer (FQD) who will mediate the conversation.
COMM_UNION is a co-production between the Festival Quartier Danses, the PHI Foundation, and les Productions des pieds des mains. The project is funded under the Agreement on Cultural Development of Montreal between the City of Montreal and the Government of Quebec.
The event will take place on Thursday, June 3 from 7 PM to 7:45 PM EDT and is in dialogue with the exhibition Lee Bae: UNION, presented at the PHI Foundation from February 24 to June 20 2021.
All are welcome! We look forward to seeing you there!
