In her first group creation, Cosmic Love, Montreal-based choreographer Clara Furey has developed a work around intuitive and poetic representations of physical phenomena. In a minimalist setting, in which all forms of communication become possible, she addresses the constant transformation of energy and the ritualization of simple gestures. With seven performers, Clara Furey creates a work of abstraction, which ultimately reveals the unique radiance of living bodies.
