 “...two authentic masterpieces [Des feux dans la nuit and Étude no. 1] (...) Dazzling!”
Jean-Pierre Pastori, 24 Heures, Lausanne, 2003

“Startling.”

“Marie Chouinard makes a triumphant return to the solo form. Two solos presented by choreographer Marie Chouinard in Ottawa (…) hypnotized and invigorated audiences.”
Philip Szporer, Hour, Montreal, 2002

Étude no. 1 is a virtuosic solo. (…) An incredibly raw performance. It’s half an hour inside a dancer’s skin in which the choreographer has blurred the lines between performing and existing.”
Susan Walker, Toronto Star, 2002

“An eerie spectacle with disturbing passages, performed by a brilliant dancer….”
Bettina Steiner, Die Presse¸ Vienna, 2001

Étude no. 1 joins the ranks of Chouinard’s successful solos for women.”
