"The exceptional life of this dancer is manifested in each movement of his body, sometimes fragile ... , joyful or painful."


Alone on stage, Dubois extends a rare and personal invitation to the audience to become co-creators of an unconventional and wildly entertaining performance. Cued by the spectators, Dubois revisits some of the sixty shows from his rich repertoire as a dancer and choreographer. Each vignette, uniquely and spontaneously reinvented, takes on new life to unveil different facets of the performer.

Ditching the conventions of traditional performance, My Body of Coming Forth by Day takes us on an exuberant and avant-garde odyssey that explores the recesses of the body’s memory to unravel what makes a masterpiece.
