Je suis un autre

"My life has a slight after-taste of confusion. I am not what I present to the world. What I want to say has nothing in common with what comes out of my mouth. I keep an eye on my comments, I hold back my actions, I do not spontaneously launch myself onto the object of my desire and my body does not just dissolve when I fail at something. I contain myself. I stay upright. Smiling. Social. I have my pride. But underneath, I am ambiguous and in flux, I am everything and its opposite. I am plant, animal, a substance in the making. Je suis un autre (I am an other).
'Je suis un autre' (I am an other) was built on the contradictions between what we believe we are or want to be, and our instincts. The sudden diversion of a look, a slight blush on the skin, a sweating or trembling hand... These physical distortions reveal internal distortions and show the traces of discrepancy between the image we have of ourselves – conditioned and domesticated – and our deepest urges. 'Je suis un autre' was born out of the sensation of imprisonment created by convention, and seeks to update the multiplicity and ambiguity of the beings that hide under its veneer."

Gaudet, Catherine

Catherine Gaudet, a graduate of UQAM, presented her first choreography in 2004, making her mark over the next two years with « Grosse fatigue »– acclaimed in Denmark – and « L’arnaque », where she was already probing the difficulties of human relations. In 2009 she delved into the effects of loss in her first long piece, « L’invasion du vide », named by the weekly « Voir » as one of its Top 5, a listing she received again in 2012 for « Je suis un autre ». That piece scratched beneath the surface of social façade to reveal the ambiguity of beings grappling with their contradictions. In 2014, in addition to « Au sein des plus raides vertus », she created « Roméo et Juliette » with Jérémie Niel, one of the pieces featured in 2050 « Mansfield – Rendez-vous à l’hôtel », an event orchestrated by La 2e Porte à Gauche, of which she is a member. From this short piece, she created, in 2016, a long version, « The most excellent and lamentable tragedy of Romeo and Juliet », presented at Usine C (Montreal) and Théâtre de Chaillot (Paris).
