La La La Human Sex



OV French


Genre : Documentary

Length :   54 minutes

Language:  French


"Human Sex" is the signature work of French-Canadian choreographer Édouard Lock and his company La La La Human Steps. Choreographed in 1985, it caught the company's attention and marked the entry of La La La Human Steps onto the international dance scene. Lock's choreographic and scenographic aesthetic was heralded as violent and oppositional and gave the company a reputation as a radical dance revisionist. Lock focused much of his choreographic attention on Louise Lecavalier, a dancer in his company. Lecavalier, whose appearance was muscular and androgynous and whose dancing was explosively risque, contributed to the revolutionary, avant-garde spirit of "Human Sex" when it was created. As the title of Lock's work suggests, the theme of this work was about the often dissatisfied nature of sexuality.
