Tracing the hypersensitive actions and exposed vulnerabilities of intimate human relationships, choreographer Sylvie Desrosiers’ Douce tourmente reflects on the authentic moments and physical manifestations of a relationship’s evolution. Within an immersive environment of sound a video created by Jeremy Mimnagh, interpreters Heidi Strauss and Marc Boivin create a powerful private world. Dramatic purpose is revealed, relations are built, and through a fragmented exploration of spatial expansion and fragmentation that is reflective and provocative, the couple’s altering strength renders a moving fragility.
