Duos pour corps et instruments, une (re)création
Duos pour corps et instruments, a [re]creation, is the perfect opportunity to see or to see once again this outstanding piece from the repertoire of choreographer Danièle Desnoyers. First presented in 2003, this intimate work is currently performed by three exceptional artists: Karina Champoux, Clara Furey and Anne Thériault. Electric guitar equipment has been modified and revamped to make this a dance that can be listened to as, one after the other, the dancers plunge into a powerful dialogue with the musical universe invented by sound designer Nancy Tobin. Sharing a palpable pleasure in being onstage, they explore the musicality of the body. Previously performed on three continents and now (re)created ten years later, this piece established Danièle Desnoyers’ reputation. It remains a performance that has lost neither its punch nor its poetry.

Danièle Desnoyers began her career in 1986 by exploring the expressiveness of the body in Des héros désaffectés. She founded Le Carré des Lombes in 1989 and gained renown for an approach that led to the emergence of new perspectives in dance in Quebec, with works whose staging and sound environments have a strong impact on the language of the body. Effusive, generous and often tinged with humour and sensuality, her choreography is characterized by a constant fluctuation between rigour and wild frenzy.
After many years of interdisciplinary work with contemporary composers, in 2010 she decided to redeploy movement and place it at the very heart of her dance in Dévorer le ciel. She soon returned, however, to a dialogue between dance and music, blending the harp and electro-acoustic music in Paradoxe Mélodie. Anatomie d’un souffle will be her fifth Danse Danse presentation.
