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.
To the pain that lingers is a co-production of the National Arts Centre and The CanDance Network Creation Fund (Agora de la danse, The Banff Centre, Theatre Junction GRAND, Vancouver International Dance Festival), and is supported by the Dance Section of the Canada Council for the Arts and by the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.
