In 2012, the annual Fringe Festival was kicked off with a large scale
performance unlike anything Philadelphia had seen before. One hundred and
fifty residents of all ages and dance backgrounds assembled at the foot of
the Philadelphia Art Museum steps, donned in the outfits of their choice,
twirling into a rhythmic human kaleidoscope. Le Grand Continental® was a
joyous and intoxicating dance spectacle, one that united people from across
Philadelphia's diverse communities and was praised by The Inquirer as
"fantastic, a festive opening ceremony" for the Festival.
Celebrated for the elegance and finesse of his choreography, Montreal's
Sylvain Émard is the mastermind behind this acclaimed work. Since its first
hometown production in 2009 it has traveled across the globe, gathering
together hundreds of dance enthusiasts to perform its sensational
choreography, combining festive line dancing with the fluidity and
expressiveness of contemporary dance.
This year, the Fringe Festival will be ushered in once again with Émard's
unifying work, but with one key difference. As the title Le Super Grand
Continental suggests, this time around Émard and his team are doing it
bigger and are looking to gather 200 dancers to realize this remarkable
performance. We hope that you'll be one of them!
No prior experience is necessary to be a part of Le Super Grand
Continental, just enthusiasm and a love of dance. A good sense of rhythm
and coordination is recommended. Auditions last the full two hours during
which time you'll be led through some of the piece's choreography by
members of the production team. Dress comfortably and bring some water. Just
