On represents the inclusive, collective sense of the French word’s “we” meaning and the feeling of moving forward from the English.
This show pays homage to José Navas’ long-time collaborators Marc Parent (light designer) and Alexander MacSween (composer). Over the years, they have made pieces that celebrate the human body and the formality of dance, pieces co-produced by Agora de la danse and presented by it. When Agora de la danse invited the choreographer to perform in its new home at Édifice Wilder - Espace danse, his first instinct was to look back and bow in gratitude to the pieces they had created together, in order to move forward. A retrospective seems appropriate. Anchored in a set design renewed by the visual artist Lino, this new group piece will reconnect with landmark successes of the company.
