A highly original encounter between the œuvre of Léo Ferré and contemporary dance.
Created in 2016 to mark the 100th anniversary of Léo Ferré’s birth, Corps Amour Anarchie / Léo Ferré (Body Love Anarchy / Léo Ferré) celebrates the work of this great French poet and composer. Conceived and directed by Pierre-Paul Savoie, this interdisciplinary show revisits Ferré’s work in a marvelous amalgam of poetry, music and contemporary dance. Featuring ten artists on stage including three singers, one musician and six dancers, the performance soars to the voices of Bia, Betty Bonifassi and Alexandre Désilets, and the choreographies of Anne Plamondon, David Rancourt, Emmanuel Jouthe, Hélène Blackburn, Alexandre Carlos and Pierre-Paul Savoie. The songs of Léo Ferré resonate now more than ever through their relevance and sheer 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.
