Benoît Lachambre / Félix-Antoine Morin

Cathartic Quest

Authenticity and a direct connection with life are significant factors in the performances of one of Canada’s most notable contem­porary choreographers, Benoît Lachambre. And what could be more genuine than actual cathartic experiences? Together with artist and musician Félix­-Antoine Morin, Lachambre goes in search of the ‘spiritual truth in creating art’ in this piece. Medicinal plant ceremonies, dolphins, repression and Catholicism play important roles in this endeavour. As do the singing voice and its resonance in architecture, echoes, vibrations and the sacred.
