DANIEL LÉVEILLÉ / DANIEL LÉVEILLÉ DANSE (CA)
AMOUR, ACIDE ET NOIX
The solemn sound of Vivaldis “Four Seasons” sets in. The four bodies on stage just stand around – neutrally. Waiting. All of a sudden spraying out excerpts from their repertoire: Triple turn on half pointe, freeze in a hug. What relationship do these technically highly trained dancers have to the rousing music? Why do they consistently deny its emotional content? In “amour, acide er noix”, Canadian choreographer Daniel Léveillé boils down human encounters into an ironic and startling cosmos.
