Benoît Lachambre is a major figure in Canadian dance, his audacious and daring works in high demand in Europe and Quebec, and he returns to the VIDF stage with Par B.L.eux, bringing a fake solo titledSnakeskins, a multimedia and poly-sensorial performance. Accompanied on stage by dancer Daniele Albanese and musician Hahn Rowe, (hence the ‘fake’ solo), Lachambre‘s body undulates, surrenders, and is ultimately transformed by minute alterations of symmetry and balance, exploring organic variations and amplitudes of movement in a reptilian metaphor that is, inevitably, about molting, a provoking meditation on new growth through the shedding of old skin.
