Dancer and choreographer Louise Lecavalier worked with Édouard Lock and La La La Human Steps from 1981 to 1999, a period of exceptional intensity punctuated by works that have since become mythical along with scintillating collaborations (David Bowie, Frank Zappa, etc.). Her extreme dance, filled with a fiery energy, caught the imagination of a whole generation. Since founding her own company, Fou glorieux, in 2006, her movement research has been emblematic of her whole career, emphasizing the surpassing of limits and risk-taking, a search for the absolute in which she seeks to bring out the “more-than-human in the human.” In 2012, she created «So Blue», her first full-length choreography, followed by «Battleground» in 2016. Both works have toured extensively, nationally and internationally. This February, her new solo work, «Stations», premiered in Germany, and will tour for the next two years. Louise has received many prestigious awards during her career.
