Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
This strange and beautiful story of a seemingly imprisoned creature is told in movement, through the body of Cirque du soleil alumnus Sandrine Lafond.
At first, the winsome creature’s movements seem almost spastic as she hurries through her days, ruled by the habit of waking up, washing up, watching television, and the sound of a bell that signals that it’s time to drink some water and eat.
But there is something in the food that triggers a frantic dream of transformation. Whatever her circumstances, the creature remains curious, even amused by her surroundings and the strange things that happen to her body.
Lafond is magnetic and conveys tremendous emotional depth through her instrument — a finely tuned body that is as precise as prose and as fluid as poetry.
— Wendy Burke
From the Fringe program:
The transformation from Cirque du Soleil performer and Celine Dion dancer to performer-generated theater artist is mirrored in this dark, comic and, at times, grotesque fable about our modern obsession with image.
The exquisite movement skills of Lafond juxtapose with the world of distortion and manipulation accentuating LITTLE LADY's tormented and blissful metamorphosis.
