A delightful choreographic collection, RADICALE VITALITÉ, SOLOS ET DUOS 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, RADICALE VITALITÉ, SOLOS ET DUOS 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!
