A landmark work in Marie Chouinard’s repertoire, bODY_rEMIX/gOLDBERG_vARIATIONS turns 15 in 2020. A tribute to the body and the art of dance; a timeless work of dazzling beauty to be enjoyed again and again.

Since its premiere in 2005, bODY_rEMIX/gOLDBERG_vARIATIONS has achieved exceptional renown. Performed 106 times in 58 cities and 22 countries, the work is a powerful expression of the artistic signature that has made the choreographer famous. To the sounds and rhythms of a reinterpretation of J. S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations, 10 dancers perform a set of variations on the theme of freedom. A multitude of prostheses—crutches, ropes, horizontal bars, harnesses—become extensions of their bodies; the devices at times restrict their movements, at others liberate and drive them, creating unusual body shapes and gestural dynamics that capture the imagination. A work at once reckless, extravagant and serious, in which the infinite potential of the moving body is endlessly reinvented. For the pleasure of discovering or rediscovering Marie Chouinard’s astonishing talent.

Tickets start at $30.00
