Combining their different talents and imaginative approaches in order to create a new grammar of dance, 6,3 Évanouissements presents six steadfast accomplices with extraordinary carte blanche. Each one of them acts as both dancer and choreographer, and together onstage, whether in leading or supporting roles, each performs as needed in a variable geometry piece. In its evanescent lightness like that of the collapsing body, swooning and fainting comprise the driving imperative of a dance marked by finesse and intelligence, where sprawling states of grace blend together, merging and rebounding and colliding far from any vague virtuous impulse. Under the supervision of Catherine Tardif and Michel F Côté, a rough and ready approach coexists alongside extreme delicacy. Between individual and collective thoughts an exquisite chimerical cadaver takes shape, generated by the conjoined fantasies of the six veteran artists.

The signature is unique, the spirit inimitable. […] With each new work she [Catherine Tardif] plows the same furrow, sowing seeds in the same way. Yet the fruits of her labours are always different, and all are imbued with the same fragrance of humanity – the fragility of the living being.– Fabienne Cabado, Revue JEU, 2006
