CATHERINE GAUDET | SE DISSOUDRE
“Se dissoudre” is a show well worth seeing, but until now only a few privileged people were able to do so. Now it’s your turn to discover this finely chiselled solo!
“Se dissoudre,” the latest piece by Catherine Gaudet for a solo dancer is a space where solitude reveals what remains when everything is on hold. To slowly dissolve. Not disappear but to be added to, to multiply and amalgamate, like sugar in a cup of tea. Where time expands, the consistency of the hours is so light, caught between a bygone past and an uncertain future.
Delicately, the dancer Marie-Philippe Santerre follows an unknown trajectory, finely chiselled, composed of contrasts and modulations, repetitions and pulsations. Like the stem of a plant that shoots up in spurts, spinning round several times on its way to maturity. The dancer is reconciled to waiting, noting the benefits, cognizant of her own transformation. Face to face with herself, solidly anchored, once the noise dies down she contains the essentials. She is raw potential, the wealth of possibilities.
