reaching rock bottom, what

does it do to the body?


thinking the movement by and from

the butt, this performance


invites the audience to ex-

plore the depth of their


interiority. A desire to tell one-

self through humiliation,


to make the bottom of the barrel

a space of connection.


a movement performance


that forms an intestine

with the gut feelings of


Emile Pineault and

Gabriel Cholette

A discussion with the artists will follow the performance on January 27th.
