Charles-Alexis Desgagnés, choreographer, performer, and finalist of the television show Révolution in 2018, reveals himself and surrenders in a vibrant solo: The call of the embers.

On stage, it is his presence and his incredible ability to inhabit space that strike first. Through modulations and tensions in body states, he pushes his limits. For the duration of a dream, we witness the transformation, the journey of a being who reinvents himself and ultimately seeks to emancipate from codes and identities. This virtuoso composition skillfully intertwines conversations about solitude and our share of divinity, carrying us away in a stimulation of lights and costumes.

Alternating between dizzying vulnerability and a viscerally animalistic physicality, this unpredictable dance experience places us in a space where the heart allows the body to take precedence over the mind.
