Montreal artist Marie Chouinard has been a notable presence on world stages for more than two decades. Her innovative choreography explores the poetics of the body in immediate and ever-surprising ways, prompting The New York Times to call her “a hurricane of unbridled imaginativeness.” Although her works may be perceived as provocative, they are better viewed as pathways towards freedom and compassion, where humor is possible and beauty is omnipresent.
The UW World Series presentation of Compagnie Marie Choiunard is part of ArtsUW’s Rite of Spring Centennial Celebration, a series of performances and lectures centered on the work that premiered in 1913. Compagnie Marie Chouinard’s program includes the choreographer’s rendition of The Rite of Spring with live music by the UW Symphony Orchestra, Jonathan Pasternack, conductor. Also on the program is 24 Preludes by Chopin performed with live accompaniment by pianist Brooks Tran, a UW School of Music doctoral student. (Recommended for mature audiences. This performance contains partial nudity.)
