Lecavalier's virtuosity touches head and heart
Lecavalier's dance language is a combination of raw energy and emotional expressiveness. In her new solo Stations, she searches for the pure essence of dance in four physical states: fluidity, control, meditation and obsession. Surfing on the movements of ebb and flow, Lecavalier seeks the ultimate freedom. Between bird and elephant, between the desire to fly and the need to be grounded. Every fibre of her body expresses in Stations what cannot be expressed in words. For Lecavalier, this quest for liberation is a necessity: 'I threw myself at every step as if my life was at stake.'
