Cultural accessibility at Danse-Cité: On December 4, 2021, attend Heather Mah's Pomegranate with live audio description at MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels).

The 55 minutes of the choreographic work will be made accessible to all people who have complete or partial vision loss. Blind and partially sighted audiences will receive live narration by two audio describers: Enora Rivière and Georges-Nicolas Tremblay.

The imagined journey of her own grandmother, born in China in 1895. Inspired by her family history, the work depicts isolation, suffering and the search for new meaning, themes that reverberate within the greater migratory movement of the era. Created around the time of her 60th birthday, Pomegranate also uses the fruit of its title as a prism through which to examine fertility and femininity, rejuvenation and resilience. Moving and poetic, this performance-homage takes the form of an intimate and introspective journey where past and present coexist.

The dance lasts 55 minutes.
The event is presented at MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels)
3680 Jeanne-Mance street, Montreal, QC H2X 2K5.
