“…Lecavalier is a black swan, a cool ghetto kid, a fantastical knight, and a head-bobbing, pale-faced zombie. Amazing.”  Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger, Cologne

Louise Lecavalier—Canada’s daring heroine of dance— explores the antihero in Battleground, a breathlessly physical duet that is part marathon and part surrealist quest. The stage is the battleground between two eccentric characters who confront the real and the imagined with fast-paced, ferocious movements delivered with epic precision. With her co-conspirator, dancer Robert Abubo, Lecavalier dives deep into a new body language, accompanied by the trancy, textured soundscore of Antoine Berthiaume.

Co-producers : Fou Glorieux; tanzhaus nrw (Düsseldorf); HELLERAU—European Center for the Arts (Dresden); CENTQUATRE-PARIS; Festival TransAmériques (Montréal); Usine C (Montréal).
