Driven by a vital impulse that always thrusts her back into the arena like a gladiator of the soul, Louise Lecavalier once again breathes new life into the primeval experience of dance. After the dazzling duets So Blue and Battleground, in this solo she journeys through a magnificent odyssey in search of her own truth.
In turn reflective, obsessive, animalistic and fluid, her hungering body seizes upon steps as if they were food for survival. With a nod to the four seasons and the cardinal points, she moves through the four stations of the piece, conquering her freedom within the far reaches of movement, between the bird and the elephant, the desire to soar yet also to remain anchored in the present. Giving shape to stories etched in her very flesh, each particle of her being expresses what is beyond words. In osmosis with the insistent drive of the music, a stunning Lecavalier attains the fullness of her art.
