LA MÉCANIQUE DES DESSOUS
Playing with the themes of femininity and androgeny, the choreographer performs archetypes to question the notion of gender fluidity. Dressing alternately in stilettos and veils, at once ultra-feminine and feminist, s/he delights in embodying paradox. Based on iconographic research and inspired by Japanese Butoh, this intriguing solo bridges dance and performance art.
CHILDREN OF CHEMISTRY
This quintet takes aim at stereotypes of masculine virility. Children of Chemistry arises from a single dance phrase, an accumulation of gestures drawn from the universes of sports and fashion. A playful composition, replete with pop culture references, in which the irrepressible individuality of the performers surfaces.
