Compagnie Marie Chouinard (Canada) - Henri Michaux Mouvements / Gymnopédies

Marie Chouinard ranks amongst the world's finest. In her continuing efforts to unravel the mystery of the human body, this queen of the avant-garde came upon the book Mouvements (1952) by Belgian surrealist Henri Michaux: a 64 page long 'mescaline trip' of human dingbats drawn with Indian ink, plus a poem. Ten dancers form the visual echo of Michaux's kaleidoscopic lines and dots. Amidst all the physical furiousness, Carole Prieur's vocal solo is praised for it's vulnerable grace.
