Mōnad - video by Kinga Michalska


Creation, 2024, 70 minutes

World Premiere April 4-13, 2024, presented by Danse-Cité at La Chapelle Scènes Contemporaines (Montreal, QC)

Mōnad transmits both images and sensations, but also gives us an intimate part of the artist, in a complex simplicity.

Mōnad (from the ancient Greek ‘monad’, meaning ‘unit’) refers to the idea of a self-sufficient, unicellular organism containing multiple universes. Major player on Québec’s hip-hop dance scene, Alexandra ‘Spicey’ Landé embodies this Mōnad.

Inspired by this primary matter and energized by her symbiotic relationship with dance and hip-hop culture, Spicey welcomes materials and sounds that form, and deform, adapt, and transform as they interact. How can we approach different incarnations of a single life? Mōnad is a vibrant consideration of the relationships in interrelated universes, questioning the notion of eternity.
