NAC Associate Dance Artist Louise Lecavalier is a goddess of dance – and So Blue is her first self-choreographed work in an illustrious history as mesmerizing Muse and virtuoso performer.

Singular, intense, and personal, Lecavalier and partner Frédéric Tavernini risk all in this radical, obsessive two-part maelstrom of movement set to a visceral score by Turkish composer Mercan Dede. With unbelievable speed, rhythm, and repetition, Louise Lecavalier reveals the depths of her atomic blue soul. She goes on the attack so that “the body could say all it had to say without being censored.” A captivating cathartic plunge, a magnificent feat, a masterstroke. A must.
