The modesty of icebergs, the crystallization of a thought process on the fragile presence of the Self as it faces the Other.
On stage, we are presented with bodies in a state of upheaval. Naked as the space around them, they suffer the essential vulnerability of the human condition, one that sees the individual sometimes rise unexpectedly above the tyranny of appearances. Trios alternate with duos, and the absence of amorous competition neutralizes all forms of exclusion. For this is not about conquest but rather the exploration of all possibilities and of the extraordinary effort required simply to live. With this clean new work, Daniel Léveillé delves even deeper into familiar terrain : the body’s demanding confrontation with the body of the Other, the mysterious relationships that govern bodies in space, the tracing of movement and its inexorable ebb and flow.
vulnerability and Daniel Léveillé dazzles again with this work.
