Compagnie Marie Chouinard
Henri Michaux : Mouvements et Gymnopédies
February 17, 2014
Monday • 8 p.m.
Admission: $51 to $63
HENRI MICHAUX: MOUVEMENTS: In 1980, Marie Chouinard discovered the book Mouvements by Henri Michaux (1899-1984). In 64 pages of India-ink drawings, a 15-page poem and an afterword, Mouvements presents multiform figures that Marie Chouinard took pleasure in reading literally, left to right and page by page, as a choreographic score. She then proceeded to decrypt the great artist’s drawings and set dance to these "movements of multiple inkjets, a celebration of blots, arms moving up and down the scales.”
GYMNOPÉDIES: “ballet for 11 dancers / around the theme of the duet / while at the piano, / the dancers take turns playing the gymnopédies of erik satie…” – Marie Chouinard
