Event Details

Inimitable percussive dancer Nic Gareiss makes a rare trip to Montreal to perform a duo concert with fiddler Alexis Chartrand. Melding unparalleled virtuosity with an introspective sensibility, the two artists trace, with disarming spontaneity, their path across French Canadian, Appalachian and Irish traditions. Propelled by melodies inherited from Québécois folklore, Gareiss and Chartrand explore, with palpable pleasure, the sharing of sounds and gestures, blurring the lines between music and dance, melody and movement. This concert is a privileged opportunity to witness the contemporaneity of our traditions, the singular creativity of Nic Gareiss’ stepdancing, and Alexis Chartrand’s unique playing on the baroque violin.
