Couldn’t make it tonight to the La La La Human Steps dance performance at the NAC in Ottawa, which is so disappointing. I signed up for the NAC series this past year esp. to see La La La Human Steps. Edouard Lock and Mark Morris are my two favorite choreographers, and La La La’s Human Sex is one of the most riveting videos I’ve come across. (I’ve never seen the piece performed live, unfortunately). I was able to attend a performance at the NAC by Louise Lacavalier last fall, though – Locke’s principle dancer. Phenomenal.
When I worked at the Artists Foundation in Boston, we showed Human Sex along with a work by Eiko and Koma, among others. I’ll find their video. It was a beautiful underwater piece.
