ART CRUSH: NEW GROUP – NEW GENRE
Want to explore off the beaten track? New ensemble Art Crush will host their premier concert this upcoming September 27th in Pollack Hall, McGill. This ensemble proposes a new approach that can be described as an on-stage chain reaction of artistic performances.
In summary, each musical piece will be accompanied by both the dancers and visual artists. The dancers’ choreography will reflect the mood of the music and at intervals they will stop and hold a fixed pose, acting as live drawing models for the visual artists before resuming their dance. The artists depict the dancers through various mediums of bas-relief sculpture, painting and illustration.
Art Crush is a dynamic event that unites different art forms and styles. This cast unites violinist Marc Djokic, violist Frédéric Lambert and the cellist Chloé Dominguez, the visual artists Avery Zhao, Diana Polizeno and Sophie Morro, and the dancers Remi Ouellette and Evelyne Laforest.
