Media Coverage

« Déployée sur des rythmes tribaux ou des harmonies savantes pour piano et cordes, [la] force d’interpellation [de Benoît Lachambre] est sidérante. »

Smaranda Olcèse-Trifan, À bras le corps, 2016-06-20

« Lachambre ne cesse d’interroger et de surprendre, ce dont témoigne encore sa nouvelle création, Lifeguard, un solo s’inspirant du grotesque et diminuant encore l’espace entre le performeur et son public. »

Hervé Pons, Les Inrockuptibles, 2016-06

“Benoit Lachambre remains an incredible performer and an inspiring artist whose collaborations continue to flourish.”

Stephanie Fromentin, Danscussions.com, 2015-05-29, about Hyperterrestres

“Benoît Lachambre’s (…) status as contemporary shaman of the theatre is something that is becoming more and more obvious to all eyes on the prize. It seems that whatever Lachambre touches turns to gold.”

James Oscar, Nelligan, 2015-05-29, about Hyperterrestres
