"Lecavalier is a whirling dervish of febrile intensity, a Rockette on speed, a terpsichorean Secretariat." -Fjord Review

From the start of her career, Louise Lecavalier hit the stage like a one-woman revolution, a muse and star dancer of Montréal-based troupe, La La La Human Steps. She performed with David Bowie, who requested she dance with him on his Sound+Vision tour, and Frank Zappa, who invited her to perform in the “G-Spot Tornado.” Now in her 50s, Lecavalier presents a stunning, 60-minute display of stamina, power, and grace, cementing her reputation for physical brilliance.

Lecavalier and partner Frédéric Tavernini risk all in the high-voltage atmosphere of this radical, raw, and haunting work set to the visceral music of Mercan Dede. With unbelievable speed, rhythm, and repetition, Lecavalier improvised unrestrainedly, so that “the body could say all it had to say without being censored.” The result is a captivating cathartic plunge, a magnificent feat, a masterstroke, a must.
