[ZØGMA] is a professional percussive dance company, performing on the national and international scenes since 2001. The company supports the creativity of choreographers who, inspired by elements of the country’s heritage and cultural diversity found in urban areas, propose a contemporary approach and a new aesthetic of Québec’s folklore, merging dance, music and song into powerful, rhythmic works.
The Sokalo Remix Project is a transatlantic artistic collaboration between [ZØGMA] and four professional artists from the Irish traditional performing arts. The production is a rhythmic journey both through the streets of Montreal and the landscape of the west of Ireland, highlighting the proximity of Irish and Quebecois traditional cultures, while proposing a new vision of folklore merging both tradition and contemporary life.
“An amazing show last night. I wanted to watch it all again the second it finished… Such a pleasing combination of interesting rhythms & whole body movement – a feast for the senses. Highly recommended!” – Charlene Morisson, Limerick.
The Sokalo Remix project is at the Harbourfront Theatre Thursday, October 13th at 7:30 PM.
