As a featured event of the Montreal All-Nighter,
the CCOV presents body_code
in collaboration with PERTE DE SIGNAL
Montreal, February 13, 2018 – As part of the 2018 Montreal All-Nighter, the Centre de Création O Vertigo – CCOV is once again pleased to open its studio to stage-performance aficionados with its presentation of body_code. This nighttime event, on the official program of the Montreal All-Nighter, will be presented in collaboration with the digital arts centre PERTE DE SIGNAL.
The theme: “(re) MIX”
With its theme of “(re) MIX,” the 15th edition of the Montreal All-Nighter encourages new and unusual collaborations, ephemeral artistic fusions and unexpected encounters. To further its goal of sharing and convergence, the CCOV has turned to the arts centre PERTE DE SIGNAL for the conception of body_code, an experiential laboratory at the crossroads of dance, performance, music, design, science and technology.
The CCOV’s contribution to the 2018 Montreal All-Nighter will thus be an artistic marriage between 6 dancers with different backgrounds and influences (contemporary and urban dance, seasoned and emerging dancers) and 4 digital artists with distinct specializations (mapping, projection, coding, sound immersion).
With the following dancers:
7STARR, Angie Cheng, Jeff Hall, Louise Michel Jackson, Simon Portigal, Elie-Anne Ross
and digital artists:
Cinzia C, Maxime Damecour, Naoto Hieda, Lucas Paris
body_code, a visual dialogue with the public
During this special evening, spectators will undergo a unique experience in which their relationship with the “black box” of a dance studio is transformed into a vibrant, participatory and immersive space. The public will be plunged into a world unto itself, ruled by ephemerality and improvisation.
In keeping with the CCOV’s policy of openness and accessibility, the public may come and go as they please during the entire performance, from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. (Please note, however, that the studio has a maximum capacity of 100 people).
Conception: Andrew Tay
Saturday, March 3, 2018, 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Free admission, no reservation required

About the CCOV
After 30 years of creation, tours and triumphs, O Vertigo’s founder and choreographer Ginette Laurin has changed her company’s mission, transforming its studio at Place des Arts into a creation centre open to the entire dance community. Since 2016, the Centre has thus been a forum for reflection, research and creation in contemporary dance, an incubator for new ideas and talent. Its mission: to offer dance artists access to the centre’s studio and to support the creation of choreographic works through various residency programs. The CCOV also encourages artistic exchanges by hosting activities open to the general public.
