A hauntingly romantic duet of muscles, tendons and bone... Inspired by Japanese Butoh dance... a minimalistic spectacle achingly animated in an extremely rigorous solo choreography. an enigmatic meditation on life's beautiful impermanence.
BODY CONCERT is a 50 minute solo show performed to a bittersweet electroacoustic score by Mark Bruckner. Elevating our shared humanity while highlighting our vulnerability and resiliency, this dance/puppet hybrid expands genre boundaries without a text or language barriers. With heartbreaking hints of nature throughout, Body Concert poetically resonates:
we are alive with life all around us.

LES SAGES FOUS: "Proud, honored and moved to have contributed to such a striking, intense and rich work. Between 2016 and 2019, Lone Wolf Tribe traveled from Trois-Rivières to New York to work on the creative stages of BODY CONCERT in our future Fabrique de Théâtre Insolite. This co-production was, for Les Sages Fous, a wonderful example of what we hope to encourage with our venue: works that come from the gut and redefine our art. Kudos to Kevin Augustine and his tremendous work!“
