ABOUT THE SHOW
A Perfect Day
Choreographed and Performed by Laurence Lemieux
Set to excerpts of Glenn Gould’s rendition of Bach’s Two and Three Part Inventions, and accompanied by a luminous sound design by John Gzowski, A Perfect Day speaks to Laurence Lemieux’s relationship to dance over time, and her sense of self within it.
Through a series of intimate solos, the work follows the performer as she recollects her past and grapples with the current urgency of the moment to share human emotion with an audience.
A Perfect Day also serves as a reflection on the importance of artistic practice as a daily occurrence, and the renewal of its purpose post-pandemic.
Run time is approximately 50 minutes.
