I often speak in hyperbole, but this show really is a stunner. The choreography (especially the last piece by Susie Burpee) is brilliant. The dancing is incomparable — Sylvie Bouchard and Brendan Wyatt are breathtaking.
I wrote and edited the text/script for it and it was one of the best most wonderful collaborative processes I’ve ever been a part of. Do come if you can!
“An undying quest for love, and a need to understand its meaning, is the basis for this full length dance-theatre trio. Through poignant and comical journeys for three timeless lovers, Histoire d’amour ponders the essence of this ethereal feeling we cannot live without.”
