My preview of Fortier Danse Creation’s Cabane

My preview of New Dance Horizon’s presentation of Montreal’s Fortier Danse Creation’s Cabane is in today’s LeaderPost. It begins:

Cabane, says Paul-Andre Fortier of Montreal’s Fortier Danse Creation, is not your typical dance show: instead, it’s “somewhere between dance, theatre, performance art, installation and site-specific.”

Presented by New Dance Horizons tonight at 8 p.m. in the Jacqui Shumiatcher Room of the Conexus Arts Centre and Friday at 8 p.m. in the Regency Ballroom of the Hotel Saskatchewan, Cabane was created and is performed by Fortier in collaboration with author, musician and visual artist Robert Racine.

“Everybody in his childhood dreamed of a small house you could play in, to create a world for your own self,” Fortier says.

With Cabane he hopes to reawaken in audiences that childhood desire to let imagination run free. There’s no linear story: instead, the two characters “create a number of situations that are quite stimulating to the audience.”
