The MAI presents two works from Montréal dance artist Sasha Kleinplatz.

We Move Together or Not at All is a choreographic installation. A sonified greenhouse made in collaboration with media alchemist Navid Navab is activated by different soloists. The piece places consent, multi-sensory performance archives, and species inter-dependency in conversation. It is a greenhouse for dancing. It is life-giving through movement. Come read, nap, hang, rest, etc.

In Miracle’ing/Close to Me/Close to You, twelve performers work and make in real time. A score for being alone-together. This choreography tries to think through unison as a practice of proximity and distance.

Sasha Kleinplatz is a dance artist in Tiohtià:ke, Canada. She is the co-founder (along with Andrew Tay) of Wants&Needs Danse. She is co-creator of the events Short&Sweet, Piss in the Pool, and LOL (Lots of Love) Fest, platforms for risk-taking and community building in performance.

Talkback with the artist following the December 9th performance — Hosted by Sylvain Verstricht.
