La vie is a glimpse into a treasure that disappears in the blink of an eye. It's a path forward, letting the past settle, and moving towards the unknown, not without fear, but with willing eyes. The terrains of our lives vary from rivers, to meadows, to mountains, but the pounding of our own heart is something we should always remember to trust.

"[...]Bouchard’s solo La Vie for dancer Mairéad Filgate contained her usual mix of the whimsical and the serious."
Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail, August 14th, 2011

Paula Citron also made special mention of La vie in her best of 2011 dance awards.
