Montreal artist Marie Chouinard has been a notable presence on world stages for more than two decades. Her innovative choreography explores the poetics of the body in immediate and ever-surprising ways, prompting The New York Times to call her a hurricane of unbridled imaginativeness. Although her works may be perceived as provocative, they are better viewed as pathways towards freedom and compassion, where humor is possible and beauty is omnipresent. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, the company will perform Le sacre du printemps with the UW Symphony Orchestra, and 24 Preludes set to the music of Chopin. (Recommended for mature audiences. This performance contains partial nudity.)
