PARADOXE MÉLODIE / LE CARRÉ DES LOMBES - DANSE DANSE
Information on the activity
April 30, 2015 to May 2, 2015
Le Carré des Lombes (Quebec)
A Danse Danse presentation
“Desnoyers has demonstrated a solid understanding of pure movement since the beginning of her career.” (The Gazette, Montreal, review of Là où je vis)
“Never flat or conventional, her dance landscape embraces vibrations, tumult and distortions. The movement is raw, urgent and invigorating, between constriction and freedom, restriction and release.” (Cahiers de théâtre Jeu, Montreal, review of Là où je vis)
In inviting her to stage, for the first time, a creation at Théâtre Maisonneuve, Danse Danse is offering Danièle Desnoyers a venue that is a match for her talent. In this new piece, the effusive and sensitive choreographer refines the dialogue between movement and sound that she has been developing for the past 30 years, by provoking here a collision between the soundscape of the harp and the contemporary sounds of electro-acoustic music of Nicolas Bernier. Torn between utopia and reality and subject to the temptations of beauty, ten dancers storm the space, giving form to her finely polished gestural language in vigorous duos and explosions of energy. A work imbued with humour and sensuality.
