REBO(U)ND is a digital work adapted to public space and designed for outdoor projection.
REBO(U)ND is a choreography on suspension, a video piece that reveals and magnifies bodies on the verge of escaping gravity, translating the ephemeral moment when the dancer floats, the space between momentum and drop, between freedom and imbalance, while the body seems to defy space and time.
Projected on urban architectural surfaces, REBO(U)ND is offered to the gaze of passers-by and the curious, bringing dance out of theaters and studios. The video mapping allows a game of perceptions by thwarting, for a few seconds or longer moments of contemplation, the notions of duration, gravity, scale and space. A visual experience to be lived and felt, REBO(U)ND is a vibrant tribute to dance that admirably illustrates the sensations of abandonment and freedom that this art provides.
REBO(U)ND is a co-production of Montréal Danse, Lorganisme and mirari.
Following Caroline Laurin-Beaucage‘s participation in Montréal Danse’s Choreographic Research Workshop in 2012, an active and fruitful collaboration was established between the choreographer and Montréal Danse. White Matter was created in 2015, followed two years later by GROUND and REBO(U)ND, the latter in collaboration with mirari. mirari’s theatrical approach and daring digital creative process, combined with Caroline Laurin-Beaucage’s poetic sensibility and the work of Kathy Casey (dramaturg), generate an impactful work, presented accross Canada and internationally.
