A hauntingly romantic duet of muscles, tendons and bone... Inspired by Japanese Butoh dance... a minimalistic spectacle achingly animated in an extremely rigorous solo choreography. an enigmatic meditation on life's beautiful impermanence. 

BODY CONCERT is a 50 minute solo show performed to a bittersweet electroacoustic score. Elevating our shared humanity while highlighting our vulnerability and resiliency, this dance/puppet hybrid expands genre boundaries without a text or language barriers. With heartbreaking hints of nature throughout, Body Concert poetically resonates:
we are alive with life all around us. 


BODY CONCERT was created through artistic residencies in Canada and Norway with the support of Les Sages Fous and Ella Fiskum Danz. It was presented in 2018 at St. Ann's Puppet Lab and received financial support from the Brooklyn Arts Council. The final creation stage took place in Trois-Rivières in November 2018.

“Resonates unsettingly, both tender and disturbing”
New York Times

“Redefines the limits of puppetry. Opens doors where we could only see a wall”
Le Nouvelliste, Trois-Rivières, Canada 


A show without words, which brings us to the border of reality,
between dance and puppetry, between life and death.
