Cold Blood

After the resounding success of Kiss & Cry (2014-15 season), the magnificent creative team of Charleroi Danses in Belgium brings Cold Blood, a poetic journey that is filmed before your very eyes.

The performance explores the miniscule, creating an ephemeral and dreamlike world where fingers cavort in delightful miniature settings and take on human-like forms. A hypnotic story laced with offbeat humor, Cold Blood explores the uncertain, yet inevitable, last moments we experience before we die. Neither a sequel nor an epilogue to Kiss & Cry, Cold Blood utilizes the same storytelling techniques, combining film, dancing fingers, music, and theater in brilliant and surprising ways. “If the team came back to Quebec ten times, we would rush to see them ten times. And would encourage you to do the same. Because their work is absolutely masterful.” (Le Devoir, Montreal)
