This book is a response to the idea and the wish to revive Françoise Sullivan’s project of four choreographies on the cycle of the seasons, to be danced and filmed in four different places. Only part of the project was completed: L’été at Les Escoumins in 1947, and Danse dans la neige on Mount Saint-Hilaire in February 1948. Sixty years later, the entire work has finally seen the light of day. In addition to the choreographies and their performance by four dancers, the project includes an important video component, co-directed by Mario Côté and Françoise Sullivan. During filming, the photographer Marion Landry captured the dancers in action for the purposes of this album, which was directed by Louise Déry.
