Le Carré des Lombes: Là où je vis

By Julye Huggins

From October 14th through 16th La Rotonde presents Le Carré des Lombes in Là où je vis, an interdisciplinary work that combines contemporary dance with live visual art and experimental music. Choreographed in 2008 by Artistic Director Danièle Desnoyers, Là où je vis uses the work of media artist Manon de Pauw and sound artist Nancy Tobin to create a kaleidoscopic environment, which five dancers navigate with spontaneous and impulsive movement. Amongst film, optical illusions and other visual effects the dancers exhibit the urgency to move. According to the company’s website, “Là où je vis reveals the troubling mechanics underlying a meticulous orchestration of bodies—bodies which act as translators of the agitation within them.” For more on Danièle Desnoyers see her profile in the Dec/Jan 2009/10 print issue of The Dance Current.
