BALLET NOIR: SÃO PAULO COMPANHIA DE DANÇA at Place des Arts
DANSE DANSE is happy to present a trifecta of beautiful dances, performed by the São Paulo Companhia de Dança at Place des Arts THÉÂTRE MAISONNEUVE – Two performances left Friday April 8th and 9th 2022
Edouard Lock and a sumptuous ballet noir.
Cassi Abranches and the intoxicating energy of Brazil.
Marco Goecke and his feverish pas de deux.
In just a few years, the São Paulo Companhia de Dança has established itself as a leading company in Latin America, and offers us the pleasure of a second visit at Danse Danse with a triple bill.
Sought after by the world’s most prestigious dance companies, Edouard Lock continues his brilliant deconstruction of the classical vocabulary. Trick Cell Play showcases the versatility and dexterity of the dancers in an almost cinematographic chiaroscuro of bodies, emblematic of the choreographer’s style. Pure Lock, superbly danced.
In Agora, the young Brazilian choreographer Cassi Abranches, a former dancer with Grupo Corpo, explores the concept of time in Latin American culture.
Lastly, renowned german choreographer Marco Goecke revisits the final pas de deux of Stravinsky’s The Firebird, an ephemeral and moving encounter between a dancing bird and a flying human. A captivating evening in three parts!
