Nuit blanche 2020 : the CCOV presents The XXL Recycled Short & Sweet

The Centre de Création O Vertigo – CCOV is thrilled to join the Nuit blanche program again this year for a lively and colourful dance experience! This year, we will be presenting a classic activity in a larger-than-life format: The Recycled XXL Short & Sweet!

We are very happy to count on Gutsy Kombucha, who will serve their delicious beverages during the event!

The Recycled XXL Short and Sweet: An Augmented Version of the Now Legendary Event!

For this 17th edition of the Nuit blanche, the CCOV will give free rein to their Guest Artistic Curator Andrew Tay and his long-time collaborator, Sasha Kleinplatz, to recreate a well-known event in the dance community: The Short & Sweet. Guest artists will be given complete freedom to present an excerpt of their work, as long as it lasts under three minutes! A timekeeper will be on site, and any work exceeding the allotted time will be immediately stopped. During this Nuit blanche, the event will take on exceptional proportions: about forty performers will take over the CCOV’s dance floor during the evening!
