How to describe Soupe du jour? We can confidently say that it presents landscapes plucked from an unbridled imagination - as is often the case with the works of Lina Cruz. Soupe du jour features Cruz’s extremely unique choreographic signature, one that always, in one way or another, comes from the absolute fringe of current trends. Why? The work of Lina Cruz is not limited by aesthetic boundaries; all is given over to create a truly fantastic universe. Forever in search of hyper-stylized forms, the choreographer also seeks to make her piece more organic. It is from this vision that the ambiguity of her work is born. Thus, Soupe du jour is peopled with characters who are extravagant and mischievous, baroque and tragic… They engage in interactions both strange and comic, creating images that are subtly, yet pleasantly unsettling. The result is an enduring performance that is both captivating and enormously original.
Lina Cruz fait resurgir le surréalisme - (...) Ce travail
chorégraphique, si physique et si créatif, me paraît d'un grand intérêt(...).
