Kankei Pãtan - Anne Dryburgh

Kankei Pãtan - Anne Dryburgh


Anne Dryburgh’s new piece subtly joins contemporary ballet and Japanese percussion.


As is always the case for the choreographer, music is the point of departure for her creation.


Here, a succession of variations on established musical patterns.


Two women and two men lend themselves to this same game and explore Kankei Pãtan, a Japanese expression that encompasses the diversity and complexity of human relations.



Dancers/performers : Catherine Toupin, Nicholas Bellefleur, Diana León, Étienne Gagnon-Delorme and Pauline Berndsen Gervais
