A playfull piece full of surprises!
Les bâtons is a piece inspired by «Boomwhackers». It is a dynamic contemporary dance performance that explores creativity and imagination. Through dance, movement and music, the artists combine their ingenuity to transform these colourful objects in surprising and unexpected ways. The originality and the poetry of this piece transports the public to think differently and open our imaginary world.
When Anik Bouvrette, the choregrapher, discovered the «Boomwhackers», she immediately wanted to create a piece with them. At the beginning of the creation process in winter 2015, she was surprised and inspired by the many ways we can use these colourful objects in mouvement, visually and musically.
For Anik Bouvrette, the Boomwhackers create a bridge with the audience and makes it accessible. « When we present Les bâtons, I can see that people have immediate connection with the Boomwhackers. At first, this is a musical instrument, but the piece brings us to discover those objects differently.»
