Compagnie Marie Chouinard
Thurs-Sat at 8 pm. Through Jan 26.
Meany Hall, UW Campus
"Montreal-based choreographer Marie Chouinard makes work that is strange without being esoteric—it’s bold and sometimes controversial, no subtle parsing necessary. The most iconic Chouinard image may be dancers with crutches and other mobility aids strapped to their bodies, bristling with new aluminum limbs and new possibilities for movement, balance, and extension. In honor of the centennial of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, her Montreal-based company will perform Chouinard’s Le sacre du printemps—another bold gesture, to choreograph that—as well as 24 Preludes, set to Chopin."
