Danse Danse presents

Gauthier Dance//Dance Company Theaterhaus Stuttgart

Gauthier Dance offers a plural evening inspired by remarkable women in contemporary dance. Hommage to Louise Lecavalier by Eric Gauthier and Andonis Foniadakis; exploration of memories of his youth – profoundly influenced by dance icon Pina Bausch – by Marco Goecke; new works by Helena Waldmann and Montreal-based choreographer Virginie Brunelle: contemporary dance in all it’s splendour.

Quebec-born choreographer Eric Gauthier, a former soloist with the Stuttgart Ballet, is now the artistic director of Gauthier Dance // Dance Company Theaterhaus Stuttgart. This evening is the latest expression of his love of dance. Marco Goecke—a frequent collaborator of the National Ballet of Canada and the Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT), to name only those two—explores memories of his youth—profoundly marked by Pina Bausch. Eric Gauthier and Andonis Foniadakis present a piece dedicated to outstanding artist Louise Lecavalier, while Berlin-based choreographer and theatre artist Helena Waldmann contributes a work both poetic and political, expressed in multi-faceted movement. Finally, Montrealer Virginie Brunelle, known for her acclaimed works Foutrement and Plomb, completes the creative quartet, deconstructing classic techniques to reveal a complex and moving humanity.

Choreographers: Virginie Brunelle, Helena Waldmann, Marco Goecke, Eric Gauthier, Andonis Foniadakis
