MGDF at the Festival International du Film sur l’Art

© Festival International du Film sur l’Art

We are so proud to announce that two art films produced by the Margie Gillis Dance Foundation and Liberamae Performance et Films by Louis-Martin Charest will be part of the programming of the 40th Festival International du Film sur l’Art: “When Dreaming Molly” and “Crow” as part of La Nuit de la danse on March, 18th at Théâtre Outremont, and will be available online from March, 19th!

“Crow” 🪶 Choreographed by Margie Gillis for artist Susan Paulson, “Crow” explores the complexity of crows through pure movement, restlessness, sensuality, and stealth. In this film adaptation, the director portrays the feeling of both physical and inner entrapment, revealing our true nature and reminding us of the ties that bind us to these innately intelligent birds.

“When Dreaming Molly” 👗 “When Dreaming Molly” is a dance show, filmed a few days before the start of the pandemic with dancer Troy Ogilvie. This piece is the continuation of the solo “Bloom”, created and performed by Margie Gillis in 1989. Choreographed to James Joyce​’s famous monologue in Ulysses, this innovative, raw, vulnerable piece illustrates the attempt to physically combine flow of consciousness and freedom of spirit. Created with the same curiosity and innovation as Joyce’s book, this adaptation pushes the boundaries of dance and playfully expands the boundaries of gender roles.
