Body and Soul
February 17 - February 23
With fluidity, generosity and a rare intensity, Crystal Pite’s Body and Soul explores the theme of duality. A truly dazzling show.
Drawing on the languages of William Forsythe, Jiří Kylián and Mats Ek, the Vancouver-based choreographer has invited the dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet to push their limits. By examining the collective and the place of the individual in the human group, she has infused Body and Soul with a powerful and communicative emotional charge.
The rise and fall of waves, the crash of surf on shore … The 41 performers draw their energy from opposing elements and transfigure, on stage, the many relationships woven into our lives. In dreamlike settings, this organic dance gloriously retraces the history of humanity thanks to solid dramaturgy and a refined aesthetic. A show that amazes, touches, energizes. Body and Soul.
