Grand Poney wishes to transport you with Waltz, a tribute to mobility devised by Jacques Poulin-Denis.

As part of the Arsenal’s Cultural Tuesdays, Dominique T Skoltz presents an experience of her “Face to Face” installation. The audience becomes the witness of a secretive exchange between a man and a woman. Jacques Poulin-Denis, male dancer in the y2o project, will offer a choreographic and theatrical exploration located between the inside and the outside, between the private and the public. A solo that reveals the crack through which escape the secrets and confidences of the soul, drop by drop.

While on tour in Gaspésie with his piece Target of God, Jacques Poulin-Denis met up with the team from La Fabrique Culturelle to create this web piece. Inspired by absence and long periods of waiting, the piece transposes the meanderings of a solitary mind to the seemingly infinite mazelike corridors of Gaspé’s legendary Fort-Péninsule.
