At the intersection of contemporary dance and urban event design, INSCAPE - l’autre maintenant turns the function of a multi-story parking lot on its head. As a hybrid, polymorphous and wandering work, it appropriates this public space as subject and stage, forging a place for reflection and gathering. The public watches as a fleeting tribe of five individuals scale the building, their bodies eating away at the sterility of the space and infusing it with sensoriality...

Choreographer Milan Gervais and Human Playground see INSCAPE as a way of experiencing and rethinking the city, giving an artistic voice to reflections on urban infrastructure, the environmental context of this new century, as well as humanity’s present and future needs.
