A Morte in Braccio

In 1946, during a trip to New York, Jeanne Renaud created and choreographed Déformité, a piece inspired by the encounter between the dizzying beauty of art and the unbearable presence of urban poverty. The sense of injustice at the trivialization of the death of a homeless man gave her the decisive impetus to create the piece. More than 60 years, later, the death of her own daughter revives the sense of urgency before life. Brilliantly performed by Louise Bédard and freely inspired by Déformité and Handel’s aria Scherza Infida is a tribute to the hidden forces that inspire humans to live in spite of it all.
