Dave St-Pierre Choreographer

A Little Tenderness For Crying Out Loud ! (2009)  for the first time at the Théâtre de la Ville

One hell of a festive and wild hustle, in which everyone from stage to audience is following the orders of a master of ceremonies. Quite Irresistible.

Impertinent, weird, and definitely out of control, Un peu de tendresse bordel de merde! [A Little Tenderness For Crying Out Loud!] by Canadian choreographer Dave Saint-Pierre puts us all, spectators and performers alike, in the same boat, thus breaking the sacrosanct fourth wall meant to separate us and undermining the current codes concerning decency, here confronted with a salutary nudity. As naked as the day they were born and wearing long blond wigs, the boys whine and skip, and play with their willies. In long dresses and high heels, the girls are all over the dance hall running frantic races, following the lead of a master of ceremonies who demands duality and chaos . War of the sexes, voyeurism, capers or fights; sex really is a child’s play, perverse and polymorphic, alternatively calling for a rebellious or an amorous mood, embodied by an unbridled dance with an aquatic finale which epitomizes the whole show: a merry shambles, faunlike and playful, in which the game is to trample the rules underfoot.
