The third in a trilogy of dance performances (Utopie, 1997, and Amour, acide et noix, 2001) La pudeur des icebergs (The Modesty of Icebergs) continues Daniel Léveillé's expression of the power of the unclothed human physique. The encounter with the body is absolute. It's primitive. Through dance, the body is brought to the very threshold of language.
The piece is set to a subtle soundscape of Chopin's Preludes Op. 28.
La pudeur des icebergs is danced nude.
‘...[La pudeur des icebergs] is a lesson about ourselves. Its experience is unforgettable. And its possibilities infinite.’
