et la femme chanta dieu
The theatre becomes a temple where women place their prayers and join their spirits with higher forces, using music and dance as their medium. Commissioned by the Festival du Monde Arabe de Montréal, Diana León choreographed a series of dances to sacred Soufi, Christian and Jewish chants, performed by the renowned singers, Dorsaf Hamdani, Ghada Shbeir and Françoise Atlan.
Premiered at Thêatre Maisonneuve on October 25th, 2019. Dancers: Diana León, Claire Campbell, Sara Harton and Shraddha Danielle Blaney
