LA PORNOGRAPHIE DES ÂMES
There can be no scruples when it comes to sex or to the stage. A rising star of new dance in Quebec, Dave St-Pierre has made a big impression with this work. It features, from A to Z, an alphabet of the forbidden and the unspoken, aggressions and transgressions. In a world where an exposed breast is considered more obscene than the death of hundreds of civilians broadcast on television, where the body is taboo but corruption commonplace, the choreographer dares to display bodies and souls. He puts the ugly, the weak and human misery on parade and constantly asks the question, What is pornographic?
In this series of fierce, biting tableaux, dancers with no equivocations and no taboos rush headlong through a waltz in 26 movements as Dave St-Pierre examines our limits and questions the role of the spectator, the performer and the performance itself. He dares to confront the naked truth.
