Created in May 2009, BLACK OUT is of punk/pop/alternative music inspiration. The work calls upon three musicians: singer Dominique Pétrin, from the 90s group Les Georges Leningrad, DJ Martin Tétrault and bass player Michel Meunier. Paired with choreographer Dana Gingras, whose work has always been intimately linked to music, these artists bring out the spirit of rock.
Dancer Karina Iraola, her presence between dance, photography and theatre, inhabits a constructed, artificial space. The project lives between visual art, dance and concert.
