Award-winning dancer & choreographer Marie-Josée Chartier presents critically-acclaimed solo piece in the studio

Three performances only!

April 9th – 11th

"...Stria, a Chartier work made by a dancesmith who probes deeply... a craftstman with radiating artistic integrity..." - Paula Citron, Classical 96.3 FM

Between theatre and dance, Stria is the latest solo work by multi-faceted award-winning creator and performer Marie-Josée Chartier. Inspired by the beautiful and unpredictable terrain of the Badlands, Chartier travels through a mosaic of memories that surface as 'états d'âme' (soul states) only to be transformed into new layers of experience. By turns dark, playful and humorous, Stria features a luminous central performance by one of Canada's most respected dance artists, with a rich theatrical landscape created through exquisite design and sound. Chartier invites the audience to a unique and colourful physical and theatrical expedition.
