Louise, Then & Now

Shared by Sydney Lancaster Louise, Then & Now Photo

I remember seeing Louise Lecavalier dance with La La La Human Steps at the SUB Theatre in the mid-80's. It was a life changing experience - to see such a strong woman dancing as if her life depended on it, launching herself across the stage with such conviction and control. I fell in love with contemporary dance in a whole new way in that moment, and Louise Lecavalier & La La La Human Steps defined what I felt dance could and should be. Seeing her dance again, just a couple of years ago at the Timms Centre (she was brought in by Brian Webb Dance), was nothing short of magic. She was still just a beautiful & powerful, but with all the wisdom of her years in the dance as well. It was so beautiful, and brought me to tears for almost the entire performance, it was so moving.
