+ AU SEIN DES PLUS RAIDES VERTUS
They stretch toward the light. They aspire to joy, to beatitude, and fight like lions to attain their heaven, tormented by an insidious fire burning within. Instincts and fears nourish the invincible force that possesses them, undermines them, propels them forward. Impossible to keep silent a body that betrays the slightest hesitation. Impossible to put up a good front in order to safeguard appearances. In Au sein des plus raides vertus, angels and devils do not get along, but are obliged to live together in constant tension. The challenge for these four men and women is to indulge in ecstasy amidst the fires of hell.
A daring choreographer of absolute integrity, Catherine Gaudet incites trouble with dance that is rooted in emotion. Extolling the theatricality of the body in order to expose our psychic complexity, in this piece she explores morality as a mirror of our contradictions. Extremely effective.
