Choreographed by Laurence Lemieux
Inspired by childhood memories both fond and fearsome, Les Paradis Perdus / Remix is a world within a world. Originally created in 2005, the choreography is revisited and reworked anew by Laurence Lemieux. Featuring original music and live performance by composer Christopher Butterfield, and performances by dancers Luke Garwood and Erin Poole.
“In its reinvented form, Lemieux’s position is more distanced, physically and figuratively. The only person reprising his original role is composer/performer Christopher Butterfield. It was Butterfield who took the 160 childhood memories Lemieux had written down before choreographing the original and incorporated many of them into a score of music and words, sung and spoken.” – Michael Crabb, The Toronto Star
