David St-Pierre

16-17 Feb

In Creation 2012 choreography by Dave St-Pierre. The Canadian choreographer Dave St-Pierre is a skilled and brilliant provocateur. Not for prudes or for the faint-hearted, he creates images and situations on stage that irritate but also touch his audience.

His works are sensitive, wild, entertaining and ruthless. His new creation is the last part of his celebrated trilogy on human utopias. In a strictly reduced set with few props, the “enfant terrible” of dance shows an emotional play of opposites: an outline of society, its superficiality and its deficiencies.

As always, he drives his 25 mostly naked dancers over the pain threshold to make the audience feel the immediacy of the body in fits full force. For an adult audience only.
