Four children are trapped without being aware of it. Torn between the call of the light and that of the bottom of the gutter, they go around in circles, twisted and crawling. Their uncertain path unfolds like the carving of a sculpture. Their monstrosity is beautiful; their purity, always dirty. The scene plays over and over again, eternal, deepening the groove in an anxiety-provoking spiral where unconscious fears wear a mask of good will and noble intentions. Au sein des plus raides vertus is a small window looking onto the grandiose, tragic passage of humanity on Earth, suspended somewhere between a quest and the loss of faith.rapports humains. Assurément une voie possible pour l’intensité.

Rarely does contemporary dance display such a beautiful balance between gestural virtuosity and coherence of purpose. With four dazzling dancers, who magnificently carry her refined, complex and yet instinctive dance, Catherine Gaudet delivers with Au sein des plus raides vertus a passionate work of sensoriality and intelligence, which explores the return of repressed impulses.
