On the initiative of Walter Boudreau, artistic director of the Société de musique contemporaine du Québec, Ginette Laurin created a choreography for Drumming, Steve Reich’s famous work. In April 1999, the culminating point of their collaboration was reached in an exceptional event uniting the SMCQ musicians and O Vertigo’s dancers on stage.
La Vie Qui Bat is Ginette Laurin’s most conceptual piece, the first work she created specifically for a musical composition. The choreography has been elaborated within a monochromatic and minimalist environment, in a spirit of continuous flow where the dancing never stops. The dancers’ bodies vibrate to the pulsations of the American composer’s repetitive music while their movements echo subtle elements of the score.
La première de la reprise de La Vie qui bat a eu lieu le 5 octobre 2009 lors de la Dance Triennale Tokyo au Japon.
