A COMPAGNIE MARIE CHOUINARD PRODUCTION

‘From micro-movements, from an impulse that shakes the lungs and bones, there is the awakening of emotion, the activation of the delirious mechanics of being “living creatures”.
 
 A community which advances, hones its movement on the fly, and collides again and again with the roots of madness and wisdom.
 
 The blocks of the real are crumbling? Content with the disorderly new order, they reveal the benevolent and luminous connections of caring.
 We return to the movements of the soul so as better to see, to know, to taste. And close our eyes, smiling.’ – Marie Chouinard.

Experimental and provoking – a cynical and playful deconstruction of femininity in a world permanently filtered by the “male gaze”.
