Marée noire
This film will be presented during the event La Nuit de la danse on March 21, 2024 at Théâtre Outremont.
Presented only in theatres

Marée Noire is a cry of the species, a survival instinct against the elements. A final breath of life before being swept away by the Earth, or perhaps conversely, a battle to be fought against all odds to hold on before extinction. A poignant film directed by Quebec choreographer Chantal Caron, with the Saint Lawrence River as its backdrop.

Chantal Caron

Although Chantal Caron has always been inspired by the river, birds and the energy of nature’s elements, the evolution of her gestural signature has become clearer over the years. Sensitive and aware of the richness and preciousness of the St. Lawrence River, on whose shores she lives, Ms. Caron, choreographer and artistic director of Fleuve | Espace danse, has developed a speciality in outdoor choreography, using daylight and the magnificence of nature as her backdrop. In 2018, she was named a Member of the Order of Canada, for her artistic creations highlighting natural heritage and her contribution to the development of the next generation of dancers”. Her short dance films Glace, Crevasse et Dérive”, Clémentine” and Prendre le Nord”, in which her dancers evolve in snow, on riverbanks, in river water and even on drifting ice, have been selected by several international film festivals and have won several top honors since 2014. Her commitment to the environment and the community of her region has also earned her the title of Ambassador of the St. Lawrence by the David Suzuki Foundation, and she is a finalist for the Prix Personnalité Arts et Culture de la Chaudière-Appalaches in 2021 and for the Prix de l’Artiste de l’année du CALQ in 2022.
