Shooting at cabaret KINGDOM
What if contemporary dance invaded the world of a strip club?
With Danse à 10 (french for $10 lap dance), eight choreographers –Marie Béland, Nicolas Cantin, Mélanie Demers, Stéphane Gladyszewski, Frédérick Gravel, Benoît Lachambre, Jérémie Niel and Manon Oligny – are invited to create inside this socially and politically incorrect place. Opposing preconceived ideas, in a time where nudity is excessively displayed, these artists will create a series of dance pieces that will flirt with both guilty pleasure and art. They will offer the audience a variety of choreographic angles in which notions of beauty, of body as object, of seduction and eroticism are literally stripped down. Can contemporary dance, beyond wanting to transgress the limits of show production and presentation, enter a “gentleman’s club” and manage to retain its power of subversion and complexity? Can the displaying of the flesh in a strip club be transcended and succeed as art? Audience members will even be allowed to let loose their inner sinner with a singular experience: an intimate performance in a private booth at the cost of $10…

In 2011, a series of police operations would destabilize the criminal underworld in Montreal, which was then dominated by the bikers and the Italian Mafia. Following a vaccuum caused by the raids, all signs indicated the imminence of a new turf war that would cast new players: the street gangs.
Considered by the bikers and the Italian Mafia as a neutral territory, the bar “Kingdom” will be the main battlefield of this new bloody chapter in the Quebec underworld. Following a series of attacks by the IB11 gang, the owner of “Kingdom” will have no choice but to hire a special team of bouncers. He will look for help amongst companions who were part of his old regiment in the Canadian Army tankers. Under the leadship of the one who called “The Kid,” these five extraordinary men of action—who are neither vigilantes nor gangsters—whill engage in a deadly struggle against one of the most violent street gangs in Montreal.
Inspired by real events currently happening in Montreal.
