Duos pour corps et instruments, a [re]creation, is the perfect opportunity to see or to see once again this outstanding piece from the repertoire of choreographer Danièle Desnoyers. First presented in 2003, this intimate work is currently performed by three exceptional artists: Karina Champoux, Clara Furey and Anne Thériault. Electric guitar equipment has been modified and revamped to make this a dance that can be listened to as, one after the other, the dancers plunge into a powerful dialogue with the musical universe invented by sound designer Nancy Tobin. Sharing a palpable pleasure in being onstage, they explore the musicality of the body. Previously performed on three continents and now (re)created ten years later, this piece established Danièle Desnoyers’ reputation. It remains a performance that has lost neither its punch nor its poetry.

“The performance presented last night by the Montreal company Le Carré des Lombes is absolutely brilliant. (…) We could have watched another two hours of such original, refreshing work.”

Daphné Bédard, Le Soleil

 

“The fluid movement bursts forth into the space like quick brush strokes on a blank canvas. (…) Bravo for this dense, feminine and compelling work.”

Stéphanie Brody, La Presse
