Both dancers and choreographers since 2002, Philippe Meunier and Ian Yaworksi cut their teeth on many solo projects before combining their strengths into this collaboration. Their mutual desire to develop a unique choreographic vocabulary, inspired by traditional québécois jigs and body percussion, is the basis of what has become Les Archipels. 

 

Born out of the traditional dance scene, they have developed a body language and rhythm vocabulary based on their deconstruction and exploration of traditional québécois folklore through the lense of a contemporary esthetic. This approach has permitted them to develop a unique choreographic signature inspired by their previous choreographies Monte-Charlesand Frictions.

 
FRICTIONS
SHOW

Frictions is an In Situ parading performance that travels with the audience through a mesmerizing story of our social phobias through the language of percussive dance and jigs. Frictions is an emotional and touching contemporary jig evoking the relationships between dancers in relation to themselves and to the spectators.

 

Often funny, often cynical. Always epic. 

CRITICS

On nous surprend à chaque fois, soit par la rythmique des séquences gestuelles (qui sont exécutées avec précision et justesse), le changement des formations spatiales et même par les émotions qui ressortent naturellement de chacun des interprètes (Philippe Meunier, Yan Yaworski, Sébastien Chalumeau, Jonathan C. Rousseau et Antoine Turmine), leurs états de corps étant clairs et habités. [...] Une pièce où le rythme, le jeu, le plaisir et la rigueur se font sentir. Ils ont réussi à plonger le public au cœur de l’œuvre et un plaisir partagé s’est fait sentir du début à la fin. Une gigue qui fait du bien au cœur.
