Teatro Principal

Louise Lecavalier and her partner, Frédéric Tavernini, risk all in this intense, rough, obsessive, and mysterious work set to Mercan Dede’s rhythmical, visceral music. As quick as thought, the body dictates its laws and transgresses its limits. “I wanted to allow the body to say everything it wants to say or can surprise itself by revealing, without censoring it, so that out of this profusion of spontaneous movements, something true and beyond our control emerges, something that exposes some of the meanderings, states of confusion, excesses, and contradictions we’re made of — both the darkness that inhabits us and the unbearable lightness of being and of the soul.” (Louise Lecavalier)

Louise Lecavalier worked with Édouard Lock and La La La Human Steps from 1981 to 1999, a period of exceptional intensity punctuated by works that have since become mythical along with scintillating collaborations (David Bowie, Frank Zappa)… Her extreme dance, filled with a fiery energy, caught the imagination of a whole generation. Since that time, with her own company, Fou Glorieux, a flexible structure that she founded in 2006, Louise has continued

to pursue, in solo and duet form, research based on virtuosity, the surpassing of limits and risk-taking – a quest for the absolute in which she seeks to unveil the “more-than-human within the human.”
