Les corps avalés
February 28 @ 8:00 pm
EIGHT DANCERS, ONE STRING QUARTET
After the highly acclaimed presentation of Beating, her first international production, created with Gauthier Dance // Dance Company Theaterhaus Stuttgart, Virginie Brunelle tackles her most ambitious work to date.
Against a backdrop of resilience and hope, Les corps avalés explores power relations, inequalities and social upheaval. Mastering the delicate balance between expressiveness and the vigorous physicality of her choreographic language, Brunelle directs eight dancers in a portrayal of a vulnerable humanity in search of gentleness and community. On stage, the Molinari Quartet delivers a radiant performance of selected pieces from the classical repertoire. The notes perfuse the smallest parts of the performers’ bodies; they animate, amplify, inspire the movement. Disarray, chaos and torment are thus sublimated. Elegant and intoxicating, Brunelle’s dance is ultimately salutary.
Presented by Danse Danse from February 26-29
