Caribou (solo)

Dance View Times / George Jackson
“Up from her chair, she throws herself about violently to the muted tract of a blaring chanson. This outburst doesn’t last long. The woman removes her jacket, steps out of the boots, pulls off her socks and stands on stage looking years younger. More than clothing, she has shed decades. An ancestress has transformed into a contemporary dancer who twists, folds and unfurls, rolls left and rises to the right, balances, pivots and makes haste with apparent determination and deliberation … In this theatrical coup, a stern statue came to life as an embodiment of youth and as an example of perpetuum mobile”. (2015)
