A new landscape is taking form in Montreal’s contemporary dance scene. Somewhere between theater, performance, and dance, Virginie Brunelle, Frédérick Gravel, and Dave St-Pierre stage pieces with current and universal themes, all the while questioning form. “Aux limites de la scène” (At the Edge of the Scene) explores the work of these three choreographers with a mosaic of interviews, excerpts of their work, and candid moments from their everyday life. The film follows their creative process and reveals how a new generation of Montréal choreographers is shaking up and provoking the world of contemporary dance.
Written and directed by Guillaume Paquin, 52 minutes, 2012, French with e.s.t.
