Performance de Yves Lalonde

1987, 15:00 minutes, colour, French & English


As part of the Aventure/Venture video presentation, this work features performances by Yves Lalonde, excerpted from Take me for a Night in New York, Icare et Isadora II, and Cendrillon: un Medley.
Lalonde takes an ironic look at some well-known symbols of our society, and he does it by using costumes, rhythmic pacing, plus various texts and musical selections.

Le performeur-danseur porte un regard ironique sur certains symboles de notre société facilement identifiables. Le langage chorégraphique prend la forme de déplacements en va-et-vient au rythme des musiques et des textes dits ou chantés. Take Me For A Night in New York est une parade devant une caméra-spectatrice immobile, alors que Icare et Isadore II et Cendrillon: un Medley sont vus à travers une caméra plus mobile.
