Canine Jaunâtre 3


Last updated date : 29/09/2023

Choreographer Marlene Monteiro Freitas has orchestrated the most carnivalesque of sports meets. No competition, no trophies, but lively cyborg bodies elatedly transgressing the frontiers between humans, animals and machines.

Upstage tennis net, scoreboard and whistle blows, the stage is set for a match… which will never begin. Proud of the heritage built on the carnivals she attended as a child in Cabo Verde, Marlene Monteiro Freitas is here to break the way things are. Canine Jaunâtre 3, literally “Yellow Canine 3” is a Lego-like game where seventeen team members/dancers, adorning the same n°3 signs, robotic bodies and cartoon faces, must follow contradictory rules and principles. Do, undo, move forward, move back, these wonderful virtuosos with no apparent purpose, interchangeable yet perfectly distinct, progressively lead the human race into uncharted territories, where frontiers between humans, animals and machines are blurred. A useful training session to question our overly cushy perception habits.
