AH HA Productions celebrates its 10 anniversary and presents the yearly performances of the Discovery Bal featuring dancers improvisers Marc Boivin, Chris Aiken and Andrew de Lotbinière Harwood and Composer improviser Diane Labrosse.

AH HA Productions, the only Canadian dance company dedicated entirely to the art of improvisation on stage, is celebrating its tenth year by presenting their annual event, which includes two entirely
improvised performances with the group Discovery Bal, and an intensive workshop produced in collaboration with Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique. AH HA Productions and its artistic director, Andrew de Lotbinière Harwood, invites you to attend an evening full of surprises with an extraordinary group of seasoned improvisers.

The Discovery Bal includes dancers-improvisers Marc Boivin, Chris Aiken and Andrew de Lotbinière Harwood, and composer-improviser Diane Labrosse. These artists have been collaborating together for over fifteen years. All the artists involved in the performances of the Discovery Bal share a deep love for the unexpected. They are all exceptional creators, improvisers and interpreters committed to an artistic process based on instinct, intuition and perception. Each member of this group has a distinct personality, a particular voice and a unique way of communicating. Yet ironically at times, each must put aside his ego, replace it with the challenge of meeting the unknown and take responsibility for the creation of a spontaneous and balanced work of art together. This demands constant vigilance and an open heart. This complete attentiveness is the soul of the work.

AH HA Productions creates, promotes, and produces various artistic events and performances utilizing alternative and spontaneous approaches to dance making and dance performance. The company’s unique work focuses on improvisation as a performing art and is greatly influenced by Harwood’s ongoing interest in Contact Improvisation, instantaneous choreography, transformation and chance procedures. AH HA Productions projects are produced in a spirit of openness where innovation, cooperation and the risk-of-the-moment are always present.

What’s contact danse?

An invitation to let go in a haven of peace. Dancing, experience the laws of gravity, momentum and balance, that is the contact improvisation.
