Lucie Grégoire Danse

Lucie Grégoire’s unremitting quest to penetrate the mysteries of metamorphosis in her dance work is a revelatory experience.

Les Choses Dernières

Created in 1994 and freely inspired by Paul Auster’s novel, this defining solo, the culminating point in an unremitting inquiry into identity, inhabited Lucie Grégoire for a long time. Today, she is passing it on to Isabelle Poirier, another very intense performer.

In Les choses dernières, a woman emerges from the night, as if from a hidden, obscure territory. Her gestures scrutinize time; her body is ever poised to flee, to the point of transparency. In “the country of last things” where everything is disintegrating, she keeps wandering, impelled by the urgency of survival. The lighting by Alain Lortie and the music by Robert M. Lepage are bound up with the dance and envelop the stage in a cinematic aura filled with a veiled, yet inflamed sensuality.
