2016 House Programs Triptyque - Page 7

ANNE & SAMUEL I gladly accepted Samuel’s lovely invitation to create a dance duo for him and Anne Plamondon. I suggested that we continue the research I started in 2005 with bODY_rEMIX/gOLDBERG_vARIATIONS. At that point, I had yet to create a man-woman duo in which dancers perform with crutches. I also wanted to involve Kinbaku, the Japanese art of bondage. Anne willingly entered into the spirit of the game and we so met the wonderful Isabelle Hanikamu. In Anne & Samuel there’s also a nod at SOFT VIRTUOSITY…, a piece I created in 2015. ►► MARIE CHOUINARD
