A flood of intense images and rhythmic pulses runs through \"Les Trous du ciel\", the debut of Marie Chouinard\'s company, with which the ensemble presented itself to the public for the first time twenty years ago. This anniversary led the world-famous Canadian choreographer to bring her \"holes of the sky\" - which is a term for the stars borrowed from the Inuit - back to the stage in a bigger line-up. In accordance with a legend, Chouinard conjures up memories of a fertile goddess of the sea in this \"Northern Lights dance\": in a sound space created by the dancers\' breath as broadcast via concealed microphones. Chouinard also presents her famous solo \"Mouvements\" again, which was originally created for dancer Carol Prieur. This time round, she extends it into a group piece which will be first performed at ImPulsTanz. The choreography is inspired by a book published in 1951 by the great Belgian writer/painter Henri Michaux, whose image and language \"mouvements\" were influenced by experiments with the drug mescaline. Chouinard\'s dancers take the positions as depicted by images of bodies in the book and present parts of a great poem also to be found in the book. As always, the artist is looking for ways to transgress the horizon of human experience..
