Lueur will be remounted at Festival Vue sur la Relève!

Monument National – Salle Hydro Québec


Lueur dans la nuit is a 20 minute-long meditative dance installation in which four women invite the public into a shared ritual of light and warmth. Throughout the piece, small candles and lights are gradually dispersed as the dancers occupy the space. Their movements are gentle, responsive to one another, and occasionally percussive, mirroring the striking and crackling of matches and flames. Dots of light pepper the space as the small candles are handed to the public to hold. The sound is created by the dancers as they walk, turn, strike matches and whisper together.

Choreographer: Lucy Fandel
Co-creators: Liliana Argumedo, Tamar Tabori, Xdzunúm Trejo, and in 2019 with Marine Morales-Casaroli.

Lueur dans la nuit was performed in the round, four times over the course of Montreal’s Nuit Blanche 2018 at the Museum of Jewish Montreal, accompanying video installation, 1001 Lights by filmmakers Philip Szporer and Marlene Millar.The piece was created with the support of the Museum of Jewish Montréal and Montréal en Lumière.
