In 2014 & 2015, Jamii had invited Danse Carpe Diem and their moving performance “Écoute pour voir” to the neighbourhood. We were excited to bring them back to The Esplanade for a series of 1-on-1 dance pop-ups!
Écoute pour voir is made up of various solos dispersed throughout the space and danced simultaneously. Dancers and spectators wear headphones connected to an iPod and share in a choreography for the duration of a piece of music. United for a moment and bound up together in movement, dancers and spectators engage in singular encounters and each solo becomes a close dialogue, an interaction that is at once unique and momentous.
