  • Daniel Léveillé has made his mark on stages all over the world with radical, impossible choreographies. With Solitudes solo (FTA, 2014) he revealed a surprising gentleness, and now he is back with Solitudes duo, a remarkably romantic and sensual piece tinged with a dash of humour.

    Zoom in on the couple - masculine, feminine, mixed, one duo after another. Identities are merged or preserved in the immaculate whiteness of a restricted space, freedom is to be found within the constraints of a relationship. With rolling hips and coiled thighs, bodies embrace and take flight in acrobatic and tender lifts only to collapse under the weight of being scorned. Compatible confidantes converge in the mirror. The nature of their connection can be seen in their eyes, in the tension of the flesh, the quality of contact. Modesty, passion, indifference, affection and lust are expressed to the sound of Bach, the harpsichord and pop-rock of the 1970s. Strength, grace and emotion blend together in the technique of demanding dance, much to the spectator’s delight.
