dance – Compagnie Marie Chouinard, Montreal


Just saw the latest Chouinard show titled bODY_rEMIX/gOLDBERG_vARIATIONS.

… erotics of disability: gorgeous dancers, prosthetics and crutches at hand, twisting tortuously into orthopedic poses of pleasure and pain.

The other day Tiger Wood got blasted for saying his play was spastic. He (and I) learned that word is offensive in 2006. The lexicon of political correctness is ever shifting.

The show is based on the Goldberg Variations as interpreted by Glenn Gould. I liked the electronically distorted sampling of a radio interview with Gould.

Modern dance is my favourite style. Thumbs up from this talent scout!
