DanceHouse and SFU Woodward’s Cultural Programming present Louise Lecavalier/Fou Glorieux.
Driven by a vital impulse to dance that constantly calls her back to the stage, Louise Lecavalier—one of Canada’s most celebrated contemporary dance artists—continues her exploration of dance with Stations. This fiery solo propels her lifelong dance trajectory forward; traversing the ebb and flow of movement and examining the memories that live in the body. After the dazzling duets So Blue and Battleground, she pursues this dizzying solo odyssey in search of her own truth.
Connecting four stations with her technical virtuosity, her stage presence, and her magnetic personality, she moves between precise delicacy and wild abandon, accompanied by scores from Antoine Berthiaume, Colin Stetson, Suuns and Jerusalem in My Heart, and Teho Teardo and Blixa Bargeld. Through the stories embedded in her flesh, each movement, whether grand or subtle, reflects an attempt to articulate human experience that lies beyond words.
