TO THE PAIN THAT LINGERS (À LA DOULEUR QUE J’AI)
COMPAGNIE VIRGINIE BRUNELLE (MONTREAL)
“Beyond the boldness and frankness of the rebellious youth, her work shows signs of a personal vision that compels attention.” – The Gazette
Virginie Brunelle is an exciting young choreographer at the forefront of the Montreal dance scene. In À La Douleur Que J’ai, she offers a poetic work that is sometimes romantic, sometimes crude, but always informed by her ongoing investigation of human relations. She explores our connection to each other – a link that can never be truly broken – one that leaves behind traces, residue…a memory.
Moving through a world of conflicting emotions, her remarkable performers appear on stage, carried by the lingering echo of separation and absence. Brunelle’s choreographic signature is distinct: highly physical performances, classical vocabulary deconstructed into jagged rhythms and raw gestural motifs.
