Details: A dance theatre trio exploring the feeling of love through the ages. The show is directed by award-winning multidisciplinary artist Marie-Josée Chartier, performed by Sylvie Bouchard, Brendan Wyatt and Vincent Leblanc-Beaudoin, and is composed of vignettes created by top Canadian choreographers Julia Aplin, Susie Burpee, Louis-Martin Charest, Denise Fujiwara, Sylvie Bouchard and Louis Laberge-Côté. The production is part of the NextSteps Contemporary Dance Series, onstage at the Harbourfront Centre Theatre with performances in French and English; April 5 (French), April 6 (English), and April 7 (English), 8pm.
Histoire d’amour is an ode to love, capturing the essence of its vulnerability, beauty, darkness, and strength. It questions, defines, and redefines this ever-changing and elusive concept that has been with humanity since the beginning of time. Originally presented in 2012 to critical acclaim, the production showcases six choreographic visions. Each choreographer was inspired by a different time period to create a unique short piece based on the essence of love.
Conceived and performed by BoucharDanse’s Artistic Director Sylvie Bouchard, whose choreography highlights include: La vie (2011); L’Implorante, created in collaboration with le Théâtre la Tangente, (Toronto, 2012 and Ottawa, 2013); and L’éternel voyage, presented at the Harbourfront Centre Theatre, as part of NextSteps (2012).
