The first monograph dedicated to the choreographer's work.
Daniel Larrieu's choreographs play on the seriousness of frivolity and the lightness of gravity. We can see how thought comes to marble, life to statues and immobility to living beings. Some of the movements he invents are modeled on a falling leaf, rising smoke, simmering water, grass stirring gently in the breeze. Vibrations of light become as important to us as a volcanic eruption.
