Compagnie Marie Chouinard (CAN): Radical Vitality / 20-21 May 2022



The legendary Canadian Marie Chouinard returns to Budapest with an extraordinary Best Of performance, by which 24 short solos and duos from her repertoire can be seen. Enjoy dance history with a new generation of dancers for a new generation of audiences.

Over forty years, Marie Chouinard has built a choreographic, visual, and mythological universe that has no equal in this world. In 24 miniatures, this visual artist of the body travels through her repertory as if in a kaleidoscope. From her pieces created between 1980 and 2018, she selects solos and duos lasting from one to thirteen minutes, set to a strong rhythm. The programme includes Chouinard classics such as bODY_rEMIX/gOLDBERG_vARIATIONS as well as newly discovered projects such as the quirky Love Attack and the literally titled Crying-Laughing Duet. Going beyond a simple reinterpretation, Radical Vitality, Solos et Duos is heightened by new costumes, mise en scène, and sound environments.
