“… Bouchard’s choreography was masterful, full of starts, stops, hesitations, pull backs and pull forwards...”

La vie


La vie was created with and for Mairéad Filgate and recreates a character's interior world, her fears, dreams and questioning; and her ambivalence towards what she is leaving behind in order to move forward.

"[...]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 also made special mention of La vie in her best of 2011 dance awards.
