This Thursday Night For Body and Light’s new show “Coming and Going” opens at Prospero Theatre, 1371 rue Ontario (metro Beaudry) for a four night run in Montreal.
The show is an absorbing, evocative look at transience, memory and a world of beautiful creatures created, destroyed and recreated by the tides. Interpreted by five female dancers, it is choreographed by Stephanie Morin-Robert with music, soundscape, voice and verse by the poet Ian Ferrier.
Here’s how one critic characterised it:
“The juxtaposition of their bodies, closely aligned with each other, and the always unpredictable nature of water onstage and off, created an intense tension for the choreography to blossom within.”
The Prospero show will present two works, one by For Body and Light, and the other by choreographer Kimberley de Jong, who will be presenting her work Cycle 2
Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 PM with a 4PM matinee on Sunday. Tickets are $22 ($18 for students or performers) and are available online or beginning two hours before every show at Prospero. This classic, old-world theatre features an upstairs bar, comfortable seating, no bad seats and room for the imagination to soar.

And here’s a couple more reviews:
“A highly physical and eerily dreamy experience for the senses. Morin-Robert’s creation uses a unique blend of movement, light, and sound to brings us on a 40 minute meditative journey that swirls and ripples like the ocean waters that inspired the piece…..”
“for body and light has created an impressive repertoire of dance performance that does precisely what their name promises. Creative use of lamps as hand held props, sharp lighting effects, minimal yet evocative onstage environments, and the beauty and power of a poet’s words give the company an exciting and vast field of dance performance possibility to work within.”
A press kit and hi-res photos of the company are also available for media.
