Les Constellations Dynamiques

Posted by MP / March 5, 2007

Sometimes too much of a good thing is a very good thing, and if last Thursday wasn't the last night of Johnny Ranger and Mindroots' "Les Constellations Dynamiques" at l'Usine C, I would be urging everyone to check it out. Unfortunately I'm too late, and in my defense all I can say is that I didn't know what I was walking into on Thursday.

"Les Constellations Dynamiques" is/was an incredible interdisciplinary performance piece, overwhelming your senses with video, sound, live music, spoken word, modern dance, and stunning set design. A version of it was performed with rave reviews in 2005 at the SAT, and in 2007 it left my mouth wide open. At any given moment, between Luciane Pinto's dance performance, Moment Factory's video environment, and the wealth of rich symbolism imbued throughout, it was hard to know what to focus on. At it's heart it seems to represent a blending of opposites; it mixes the spiritual with the statistical, the organic with the digital, and for the simple sake of digestion I would love to have the chance to see this piece again.

I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for future productions involving Johnny Ranger, Mindroots, and Moment Factory. In addition, from the look of their upcoming program, it looks like I'll be seeking to see more performances at l'Usine C.

Awesome blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about here?
I'd really like to be a part of community where I can get suggestions from other experienced peopke that share the same interest.
If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
Thanks a lot!

Hey, thanks for fenuirtag this. Just a few suggestions :-)I think it would have been nice if the post had some more leaves and branches (being a veggie, would prefer not to use the meat word here :-)). The article seems to have been written in haste and sadly, I may add with a lot less passion as compared to the previous ones. The overall impact of the article as I have always emphasized would have been much more, if you had a nice leading picture of trees setting the context. Yeah, there are two pictures but I can barely see them and they are too geeky! By any chance, is the author of this article a s/w engineer? Second question, why does the author prefer to remain anonymous ?Overall, I think you have a fantastic initiative but please more articles and with more passion. This is a fervent request from a loyal reader. Hope you guys/gals out there behind this site are listening and will act on this. Of course, you can opt not to :-)

Can I simply just say what a comfort to uncover an individual who truly understands what they're discussing on the
net. You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
More and more people need to read this and
understand this side of the story. I can't believe you aren't more popular
because you most certainly possess the gift.
