Here's your year of goosebump-raising contemporary dance planned, Live Art Dance's 2014-2015 season, season number 32, has been announced.

Here it is at a glance:

Peter Trosztmer's (Montréal) Eesti: Myths and Machines is a solo performance with a moving sound sculpture. Sept 25-27, 2014 8pm at the Sir James Dunn Theatre. He says: "I'm exploring disruption, because I believe trauma causes disruption."

Grand Poney/Jacques Poulin-Denis (Montréal)'s Cible de Dieu (Target of God) is another solo piece full of raw sincerity. Oct 9-11, 2014 8pm at the Sir James Dunn Theatre. He says: "I work within human themes and feelings, human experiences that everyone lives through. It's what brings us together and what sets us apart. That's really what's at the heart of my work." (video in French, translation mine)

Grouped’ArtGravelArtGroup's (Montréal) Usually Beauty Fails brings the noise with a rock and roll, pop culture jam on gender, love and beauty. Choreographer/dancer/musician Frederick Gravel says: "The discussion we have between all these art forms make this kind of group so that's why it's an art group, it's not a dance group, it's not a music group."

Sinha Danse + Constantinople's (Montréal) Sunya features themes of cultural migration as expressed by Indo-Armenian dancer/choreographer Roger Sinha and Iranian-born musician/composer Kiya Tabassian. Jan 15-17, 2015 8pm at the Sir James Dunn Theatre. Excerpts below.

Ballet BC will demonstrate where ballet is headed with three works from some of Europe's groundbreaking choreographers. Feb 11, 2015 8pm at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium. Click here to see a clip from Johan Inger's Walking Mad (and get Ravel's Bolero stuck in your head for the rest of the day.

Out Innerspace's (Vancouver) Me So You So Me is inspired by manga and I think that should be enough to convince you, but if not, here's a video. April 23-25, 2015 8pm at the Sir James Dunn Theatre.

Marta Marta Productions + Microcosmos's (Vancouver) Speaking in Ligeti offers real bang for your dance buck, a string quartet AND an innovative, celebratory take on György Ligeti's "Quartet No. 1." May 29-30, 2015 7pm- Sir James Dunn Theatre.
