Présentation Montréal Art Lounge (Nov 25, 2016) Accès Asie (May 12, 2017)
Year 2017

La bande sonore, basée sur une musique molam du peuple Thaï-dam est une complainte de chant lointain. Elle deviendra tourment et l’audience s'y perdra pour entamer un voyage à travers leurs propres pensées. L'univers créé sera soutenu par une création visuelle expérimentale et par une performance de danse contemporaine.

Les préoccupations et les attentes is a performance piece based on Molam, a song of lament of the Tai dam people. In this multidisciplinary performance, the artists combine experimental sound, image and contemporary dance to create a universe inviting the audience on a deeply moving, cerebral journey.
