2. Fonderie Darling: HOZHRO

Check out extracts from this multidisciplinary performance! Hozhro means “harmony, beauty” in Navajo. Based on Michel Gonneville’s eponymous scenic cantata, this multidisciplinary performance was developed from a 1991 choreography by Jean-Pierre Perreault, entitled Îles. This cantata follows the journey of a woman haunted by the ecological crisis who seeks to recover the inner harmony essential to any action in this world.
