Event Details

Sinha Danse is a professional contemporary dance company based in Montreal and founded by Roger Sinha over 25 years ago. Creating, producing, and presenting contemporary dance are the center of the company’s mandates, choreographing with a level of excellence inspired by the Indian cultural heritage of its founder.

Out of Bark and Bone goes back to the essential vital forces that define our humanity and give shape to who we are fundamentally – beyond divisions, affiliations, ethnic groups and cultural identities. Voice, breath and rhythm constitute the canvas of the piece. The constant fleeting interactions between humans, locked up in themselves, bouncing within the limits of their own breath, encircled by others, trying to escape, are driven by the essential need to continually outgrow and emancipate from what was there before, individually or as a group.

Two musicians accompany six dancers on stage in this piece, created by the choreographer Roger Sinha in collaboration with the dancers and composer Katia Makdissi-Warren. The perpetual inner rhythms of the bodies resonate with the deep sound of the didgeridoo and the steady beat of the drums in an effort to strip out the inessential. Humans and instruments communicate, sustained by the breath. Almost otherworldly throat sounds, coming from the depths of bodies, heavy with ancestry, get intertwined with the rhythmic projection of the human speech, fused within in the constant circular tones of the didgeridoo.

Brilliant dance that speaks to this country’s breadth and depth of talent from la belle province – what better way to end this 6 series celebration of Canada’s regions and the arts.

Outside/In is a free celebration of arts and culture taking place over six Saturdays in early 2023, featuring nationally-renowned performing artists from six different regions of Canada.
