The international reputation of the Compagnie Marie Chouinard is the result of twenty-eight years of work by Montreal artist Marie Chouinard. Using the 24 Preludes in Frédéric Chopin’s opus 28 as her source of inspiration, Marie Chouinard has choreographed this piece with a spirit that reflects her great facility in dealing with the demands of a classical form, musical in this instance. The Rite of Spring explores a New World and marks the entry of dance into modernity. In this avant-garde work, Marie Chouinard again finds an original pulsation that is essential to her movement. The inner intelligence of the body and the inexhaustible complexity of its articulations and mutations harmonize in formally accomplished constructions in which style and substance are in perfect resonance.
