Sylvie Bouchard writes:
“ When I saw Marie-Josée Chartier perform seated woman / femme assise in Vancouver (Dancing on the Edge) in 1991, I was 27 years old, and was moved to my core. To me, the imagery and world created in seated woman speaks about the human condition, our fragility, our strengths, our desire to free ourselves and inability to achieve this, our dreams, struggles, barriers, innocence, beauty and so much more. I am hugely honored to be performing seated woman / femme assise at Older & Reckless, and I hope that you can come to witness this magnificent work ”

Steptext Magazine, Fall 1992
...seated woman, a work that conveyed emotions and fragility, was terrifyingly humane, performed from the confines of a chair....Chartier twitched, tensed and contorted herself in movements that played on the mind's fears, suggesting images of aging and loss of self-control.
