The PLI.Ē Project fuses the delicate balancing act of ballet, and the intricate, yet subtle touch of paper folding into a colorful display of movements. The project was created by two Montreal based artists, who were seeking for ways to bring their different field into one working performance. Featuring dancers in human size, paper apparels, the PLI.E project sorts to showcase dance and paper crafts.
Creators Melika Dez ( who manged the photography and models) and Pauline Loctin ( who created the costumes ) came together in 2018 for the first part of the project. Each focusing on their area of prominence and diving location and placement of dancers between themselves.
“Paper can be a fragile material to work with and that is exactly why we decided to make the impossible, possible. No matter which element we would be confronted to, water (rain), wind, we wanted to show that we are limitless.” Pauline Loctin
