Compagnie Marie Chouinard - bODY_rEMIX/les_vARIATIONS_gOLDBERG

Théâtre Maisonneuve January 28 and 29, 2020

A CONTEMPORARY DANCE CLASSIC

 

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.
