Orphee et Eurydice

Choreography by Marie Choinard

Bodies propelled by subterranean forces surging through them in a sinister, surreal universe, a world where the grotesque vies with Eros.

This demonic piece exposes the visceral sources of creation. Breaths, shouts, vowels and consonants are pulled out from the organic like an infra tongue extirpated from the inmost depths of the body.

It is not a myth about love. It features not a single Eurydice or Orpheus but several, multiple in number and in gender. Moving between harmony and heartbreak, comedy and cruelty, the vital pulsations of the living are apparent in bodies possessed.
