“How to film the moving body in a hostile world?”

Mandoline Hybride / Priscilla Guy

Regards Hybrides: An International Forum is an event dedicated to the interaction between dance and cinema in the age of digital media, the Internet and the multiplication of screens in our daily lives. Our bodies move in front of ubiquitous cameras with unprecedented ease, while our most ordinary gestures are archived and distributed in a multitude of contexts. From these realities, what artistic discourses emerge? At the confluence of a set of hybrid practices, artist and curator Priscilla Guy proposes a critical look at the relationships between dancing bodies, screens and cameras through three themes: self-representation, onscreen racial issues and socio-artistic intervention. Bringing together a group of artists and specialists from here and abroad, Mandoline Hybride / Priscilla Guy offers a singular programme of short film screenings, panel discussions, conferences, exploratory workshops, and performances. This event is preceded by the fourth edition of the professional intensive workshop offered at Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique from November 6 to 10.
Manifesto: “How to film the moving body in an hostile world?”


The programme is in English and French. Simultaneous translation provided on Saturday from 10AM to 7PM.

Production Mandoline Hybride / Priscilla Guy
In partnership with Agora de la danse, the Moving Image Reasearch Lab, La danse sur les routes du Québec, as well as the Association Camillau (France) and the screendance touring festival Agite Y Sirva (Mexico)

Founded in 2007 by multidisciplinary Montreal-based artist Priscilla Guy, Mandoline Hybride creates atypical choreographic works that tour locally and internationally. The company also develops actively pedagogical projects and mediation projects, and finds itself at the origin of numerous collective initiatives in the artistic landscape. Its rich repertoire (screendance, site specific, multidisciplinary stage performances) is articulated around the inscription of the moving body in its everyday environment (landscapes, architectures, furniture) and the productive relations between different artistic media.

In parallel to her artistic work, Priscilla Guy collaborates to the advancement of art research through various publications, lectures and academic projects. She pursues a PhD in Cinema at Université de Lille (France) with a thesis focused on the self-representation of women artists on screen.

In 2012, Priscilla Guy co-founded Regards Hybrides, a project dedicated to articulating discourses and dance practices on screen. Through its web platform, Regards Hybrides gathers online resources and work tools (list of festivals, specialized publications, links to key organizations) that promote the development of these hybrid practices. A mentoring program for artists and presenters launched in 2014 aims to support the milieu in its efforts for developing hybrid works in dance and cinema.

In November 2017, Mandoline Hybride celebrates its 10th anniversary, a celebration that mirrors the plurality of its mandate with the first edition of the Regards Hybrides: An International Forum.
