Hélène Langevin, choreographer
In this bold and playful work, children take part in a unique experience in which they not only see a dance performance but actively participate! The show starts with A of course, with Z the last to take his leave. In between, the letters embody a plethora of words, meanings, emotions, and tones of voice. Bouge de là (created in 2000) remains one of the rare professional dance companies in Québec devoted exclusively to creating dance presentations for children: La Tribu Hurluberlu (2000), Like the 5 Fingers on your Hand (2003), CHUT!! (2005), Old Thomas and the Little Fairy (2008), The Studio (2010), Bedtime! (2013), and The 26 Letter Dance. Whether you are a child of four or 94, this production will delight.
Generously sponsored by Joan Farlinger, Salt Spring Coffee, and Country Grocer.
April 9, 2019 Workshops
- Community workshop: 5:00pm – 7:00pm ArtSpring with Corinne Crane, Ariane Boulet and Hélène Langevin.Improvisational tools
Dancers and performers of all levels workshop with Hélène Langevin and company performers Corinne Crane and Ariane Boulet.
Focus is on structured improvisational dance tools aimed at finding expression of the body, having fun dancing together and promoting listening to the group. Hélène has a special talent for instilling the sheer pleasure of movement in her students. The community workshop is for teenagers and adults; children over seven years old may register as well if accompanied by an adult.
Hélène Langevin studied contemporary dance at l’Université du Québec à Montréal, and has taught creative dance for over twenty-five years. She has pursued her research in a range of movement techniques, including contact improvisation, theatre, vocal exploration and Tango. Her tastes definitely lean towards the theatrical, as well as the exploration of different art forms combining elements of video, acrobatics and dance. Her true passion is to transmit to people of all ages the pleasure of dancing, and in doing so, reconciling pedagogy and creation.
Hélène’s strength is her ability to be playful and whimsical without being choreographically reductive.
