REBO(U)ND // Caroline Laurin-Beaucage
Year of creation: 2018
Duration: 7 minutes loop, continuous
Architectural video projection
A choreography of suspension, REBO(U)ND is an architectural video projection unveiling and magnifying bodies on the verge of escaping gravity. A project of choreographer Caroline Laurin-Beaucage with the companies Montréal Danse, Lorganisme and Hub Studio, the piece was made possible with the exceptional support of the Canada Council for the Arts as part of the New Chapter Initiative. It reveals the ephemeral instant when the performer floats, between momentum and falling, between liberty and unbalance, just as the body seems to defy space and time.
Projected on architectural surfaces, REBO(U)ND will be accessible to everyone, taking dance out of theaters and studios and into the streets. Video mapping plays with perceptions, thwarting notions of time, gravity, scale and space, whether for 10 seconds or long-lasting contemplations. A visual performance to be experienced and felt, REBO(U)ND delights in the sensations of abandon and liberty that dance can procure.
