Human Playground: This project has been such an exciting journey - talk about an Auto-Fiction novel and a roller coaster of emotions! Using the automobile as a dance partner, a stage, and a travelling machine brings on new challenges every season. With over 50 shows and 10 used cars under our belts, and countless new friendships made along the way, we're ready to make 2014 our biggest road trip ever! First stops: Flux London Dance Festival and Guelph Dance Festival, here we come!
|Human Playground digs their way out of winter to join us in Guelph this spring!|
|Human Playground uses whatever space they can find to rehearse.|
|Human Playground gets ready to embrace adventure in Guelph!|
|The car as a dance partner, stage, travelling machine, and place of rest and humour!|
Cheers from the Auto-Fiction team! Here's to amazing and crazy projects!
Montreal-based dancer and choreographer Milan Gervais conceives and performs choreographic proposals for public spaces: on sidewalks (Side walk dancing, 2008), in parking lots (Auto-Fiction, 2009), in transit paths (Trait d’union, 2011), and around crosswalks (Intersection, 2012). Her work has been presented at many festivals in Canada and Europe.
She has co-directed Human Playground with Louliko Shibao since 2011.
