Dominique Bagouet (France) Reconstructed
by Les Carnets Bagouet for Dance Theatre of Ireland (1995)
".Strikingly original.an extraordinary mix of content."
The Irish Times
".the work is all about form, patterns, style and atmosphere.Mozart's
music gives the work a neoclassical feel effectively counteracted
by the modern music of Tristan Murail."
"DESERTS D'AMOUR and BONEFIRE is the most diverse
and enjoyable evening of modern dance for a very long time."
".intricate layers of ground controlled choreography that lifts
the spirits immensely."
" . where dissonance meets harmony. inventive and subtly assured
work of contemporary dance, performed with apposite understated
panache by Dance Theatre of Ireland."
