Marie Chouinard (CA) – Radical Vitality
“Een getuigenis van een even ongewoon productieve als creatieve kunstenares” Tanzschrift.at
(In forty years, Marie Chouinard went through all stages between the enfant terrible and the coryfee of Canadian dance. She is also a household name outside her own country, with a striking dance language that is radically physical, grotesque and theatrical, often sensual and erotic. And last but not least: witty! For her Radical Vitality, she delved into her rich oeuvre, digging up a collection of 23 solos and duets, varying in length from one to ten mi partner nutes. Enthusiasts will recognize a lot: the exuberant forms, the unrestrained theatricality, the unparliamentary work, the masks, suggestive blades, prostheses. Radical Vitality is an exciting anthology of dance miniatures.
