How do you resign yourself to something that will never be? You stop wanting that thing, you go numb or you kill the agent of desire.
—Jenny Holzer

The Holy Body Tattoo will unleash riotous and revelatory contemporary dance in concert with a soaring (and effing loud) score performed live by Montreal’s celebrated post-rockers, Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Not to mention film projections, light sculptures, textual elements and the existential crisis of the daily grind. Launnie, you’re in for a treat.

Directed by Dana Gingras
Choreography by Noam Gagnon and Dana Gingras
Music by Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Produced by Animals of Distinction
Co-produced by National Arts Centre, Ottawa; PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, Vancouver; Adelaide Festival of Arts; Place des Arts Montréal; Luminato Festival, Toronto; Edinburgh International Festival; and BAM for the Next Wave Festival
