Post-performance talk with the artists

    Friday January 31, 2020

A meticulous assemblage of 25 dance miniatures, RADICAL VITALITY, SOLOS AND DUETS exposes the human figure in all its forms. A fascinating journey into the artistic world of Marie Chouinard; an encounter with the quintessence of her work.

A delightful choreographic collection, RADICAL VITALITY, SOLOS AND DUETS is an eclectic anthology of three short original works combined with standalone excerpts from historical pieces the choreographer has reconsidered from a fresh perspective. All the elements are united by the brilliance of Chouinard’s distinctive movement vocabulary. From one vignette to the next, in constant alternation, the work interweaves tragedy and comedy, tenderness and cruelty, vulnerability and strength, the graceful and the strange. With its appealing retrospective approach, RADICAL VITALITY, SOLOS AND DUETS bears witness to a long and profound creative process that has evolved over many years and in every corner of the world. Given masterful expression by magnificent performers, Marie Chouinard’s vitality, humour and flamboyance shine out with dazzling radiance. This is great art!
