Louise Levcavalier

If modern dance enthusiasts knew that it would take former La La La Human Steps performer Louise Lecavalier twelve years to show up again in Toronto, the revolt would have started a long time ago. The physical expression icon returns to the Fleck Dance Theatre in April with her company, Fou Glorieux, to showcase a new project entitled Children .

Choreographed by England’s Nigel Chanock, Children illustrates the fine line between love and hate, passion and violence. The dark, witty, physical movement piece features a moving program of duets.

Those that experienced her later work with Montreal’s Édouard Lock are in for a double treat. Along with dancer Keir Knight , Lecavalier will perform excerpts from 2 and Exaucé/Salt in a presentation that demands technical rigour, immeasurable strength, and total abandonment of complex choreographic structure.

Why merge of artistic concepts in a single offering?

“I began to miss the dance from the La La La period, and felt like placing it in a different context,” affirms Lecavalier. “The approach has remained firmly rooted inside me; nowhere else have I found it.”
