Let's go back to the light!
Combining live music, acrobatics and dance, Après la nuit is a waking dream, a journey filled with freedom and a fiery zest for life.
The spectators, arranged in a circle, are plunged into the heart of a TOHU completely transformed for the occasion. In the center are three musicians, while around and above them are unfurled striking acrobatic and choreographic images.
Created by the company Nord Nord Est under the direction of Benoit Landry (Serge Fiori - Seul ensemble du Cirque Éloize), at the invitation of TOHU, the show features the group CHANCES, a powerful Montreal trio with sounds borrowing from pop, electro and world music. It brings together an exceptional cast of a dozen acrobats and dancers who take over TOHU in all its height, giving pride of place to aerial acrobatics.
A unique event, a true ceremony of return to the light!
Actor, musician, singer, artistic director and stage director, Benoit Landry will blow your mind and ears off with this breathtaking multidisciplinary show. "It's about dreams, our greatest creative force. Dreams, imagination and poetry are at the heart of our resistance as humanity. Après la nuit is about what unites us, what we have in common, the desire to live, our need to be in contact with each other. The circular room creates a sense of communion. It brings a sacred dimension," he adds.
