A highly original encounter between the œuvre of Léo Ferré and contemporary dance.

2016 marks the 100th birthday of Léo Ferré. After successful collaboration in Danse Lhasa Danse, PPS Danse and Coup de cœur francophone join forces once again to create a wonderful hommage entitled Corps Amour Anarchie (Body  Love Anarchy) – an interdisciplinary show which celebrates the works of this important francophone artist of the 20th century.

Corps Amour Anarchie explores Léo Ferré’s oeuvre and captures his soul, his musique, his words – always vibrant and precise… – and present them to you.

Created and directed by Pierre-Paul Savoie, Artistic Director of PPS Danse, this show reunites fifteen artists on stage: six dancers, five musicians and four singers, under the Musical Direction of Philippe B and Philippe Brault.

Brought to live by singers Alexandre Désilets, Bïa, Michel Faubert and Philippe B and by the choreographies of collaborating artists Anne Plamondon, David Rancourt, Emmanuel Jouthe, Hélène Blackburn and Pierre-Paul Savoie himself, the songs will resonate more than ever before with relevance and magnificence.

Oscillating between love and anarchy, memory and sea, solitude and hope, Léo Ferré’s œuvre will spread its wings and appeal to our imagination, to show us the poetry of the world in all of its splendour.

The show had its première in Montréal during the 30th anniversary edition of the Coup de cœur francophone Festival at Place des Arts in 2016.
