  • Variations pour corps multiples (Variations for multiple bodies) Chantal Lamirande is a quintet that combines atypical and completely mobile bodies to create real diversity. Immersed in the sensitive and muted lighting of Lee Anholt and supported by Marc Gendron’s electronic musical score, Variations pour corps multiples is a resolutely physical piece, without a narrative. A piece devoted to physical sensations and precision of movement, in touch with the other. The dance’s aesthetic is neat and sober and arises through five energies, five interpretations, five universes. This unusual encounter between wheel, prosthesis and flesh exposes a complex, neatly binded physical truth that produces a dialog between body and object, between the mystery of the unsaid and the obvious image of the altered body. Each tableau becomes a common language, a benevolent gaze, a lively, gentle, fluid, intense, sounding, hesitant, strong, mature, juvenile
