Sang Bleu is an exploration about the body and its relationship to its material components. Clusters of flesh and bacteria that interpenetrate, devour each other, and decompose.
Whether it is through death, illness or infection, the artists propose a vision of degeneration that divorced from finality or the annihilation of the body.
Dany Leclerc and Andréane Desjardins have already collaborated on the creation of Mange-Moi presented in Tangente (2014) and La Chapelle (2015). From this first meeting, these two artists realized their common interest for the dramaturgical research of the “dancing body” and the “circus body”, as well as a need to question the conventions established in their respective disciplines. Therefore, a desire to continue this collaboration leads them into a process of research and creation of a hybrid duet between dance and contemporary contortion.
