A new place, the loss of the familiar, uncertainty, curiosity. L’envol visits old memories and remembers those who have traveled the road that stretches towards the light, their lives arrested much too soon.

L’envol was created by Sylvie Bouchard and commissioned by the Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre.
