Corps Étranger I

at the 6th Somatic Dance Conference in New York

Germain is interested in how the body can be perceived through different angles, inviting audience members to be curious about how one adapts to her/his ever changing identity. She uses principles of the Feldenkrais Method as part of her creative process. As the choreography evolves, the body transforms with careful, methodical, and sensitive movements. The slow articulation of the body takes the audience through a series of shapes and landscapes, bringing strangeness from light to shadow. This piece is interested in what happens when we are brought out of our comfort zones, or when parts of the self become unfamiliar.

Reviews

“(Le Projet Migration)… is engaging, heartfelt, and inspired by real events. This honesty and authenticity add a dimension to the work that cannot be faked.”

Bloody Underrated

On peut aussi, a souligné le magistrat, se marier avec soi-même: un peu compliqué quand on veut la séparation de biens.

Corps étranger II est aussi un riche univers sculptural vivant, organique. J’y ai vu, dans une magie qui se fait et fuit, un masque africain, des protubérances grotesques, une citrouille, une forme extraterrestre, un énorme sexe féminin, des chairs carnivores

Christine Germain, accompagnée par Sonshèree Giles et Joyce Lu, nous laisse toute la marge de manoeuvre sur le sens de l'oeuvre avec le temps pour le faire, grâce aux habiles et fins éclairages de Heather Basarab. De ce "Corps étranger (II)", je retiens que sur un fond d'ombre, d'habiles éclairages peuvent permettre de nous "raconter notre propre histoire".
