Bigico – Improv jigging match

Created in Montreal by Bigico and based on a concept by choreographer Jonathan C. Rousseau, this jigging improvisation match brings together jiggers in action to dazzle the audience. Risk-taking and rhythmic complexity will be on display to make the show electrifying. The success of this match relies on the diversity of improvisations, the conviviality, and the virtuosity of its artists.

Accompanied by a traditional musician, two teams compete in short improvisations during two thirty-five-minute periods. The audience then votes for the best performances. A first at the festival!

Featuring Yaëlle Azoulay, Olivier Arseneault, Rachel Carignan, Sébastien Chalumeau, Mélody Clermont, Mélina Mauger-Lavigne, Jonathan C. Rousseau, Mélissandre T-B, Antoine Turmine and Nicolas Babineau
