Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie presents the world premiere of Against Nature / À Rebours with choreography by James Kudelka.
The second in a series of music/dance/theatre pieces by James Kudelka (the first being the acclaimed From the House of Mirth), featuring original music by James Rolfe, Libretto by Alex Poch-Goldin and inspired by a book of the same name by author Joris-Karl Huysmans. Laurence Lemieux performs in this beautiful new work with John Hess on piano, Parmela Attariwala on violin and Carina Reeves on cello.
“I had come back time and again to Against Nature, a very strange novel by Joris Karl Huysmans. It is sensuous, celebrating smell, touch, colour, skin, poetry, painting, sex, and home decorating; to the point of decadence. A man, tired of the debauched and decadent world in which he has lived becomes a recluse, and aims to create his own universe within his home. What starts as a celebration of ‘nature’, however, becomes a personal disaster as he turns far away from the world.”
