Louise Lecavalier (Canada)

  • 1 hr
  • PREMIERE 2020


Co-produced with La rose des vents Scène nationale Lille Métropole Villeneuve d’Ascq

Moved by a vital urge that keeps her going back on stage, here Louise Lecavalier refreshes the primitive experience we call dancing. In four stations, like the number of cardinal points and states of the body – fluidity, control, meditation and obsession – she continues her exploration of dance in a spirited solo on the verge of the intimate. Completely in harmony with and inspired by the music, this exceptional dancer reaches the pinnacle of her art form. Definitely not one to miss!
