Catherine Gaudet will present the work Se dissoudre in premiere at the Agora de la danse from May 11 to 15, 2021.
To slowly dissolve. Not disappear but to be added to, to multiply and amalgamate, like sugar in a cup of tea. Where time expands, the consistency of the hours is so light, caught between a bygone past and an uncertain future. Delicately, the dancer Marie-Philippe Santerre follows an unknown trajectory, finely chiseled, composed of contrasts and modulations, repetitions and pulsations. Like the stem of a plant that shoots up in spurts, spinning round several times on its way to maturity. The dancer is reconciled to waiting, noting the benefits, cognizant of her own transformation. Face to face with herself, solidly anchored, once the noise dies down she contains the essentials. She is raw potential, a wealth of possibilities.
