Corde raide


This project, which debuted in Montreal in 2010, explores themes of mourning and memory through music and projections, along with an orchestra of shadows and a virtual choir. A work in constant evolution, Tightrope has become Corde raide, Cuerda Floja, and Corda Bamba and has been presented in Toronto, Montreal, Mexico, Sao Paulo, and Havana, each time involving local drag queens and artists.

Artists Stephen Lawson and Aaron Pollard, who make up the duo, are invaluable partners of the Festival Phénomena, along with their collaborator Alexis O’Hara. Montreal audiences will have the privilege of attending this cult show that will begin with a parade leaving from parc Lahaie and finish with a brief ceremony at the Sala Rossa under lighting by Lucie Bazzo.
