Bold, outrageous, and shocking, Le cri des méduses, is a perfect fit for our new TITAS/UNFILTERED series. Alan Lake has created a work poised between fable and allegory. Le cri des méduses, a polymorphic choreographic work– enriched with visual art and video – reinforces Alan Lake’s status as a significant Canadian artist. Starting from Théodore Géricault’s painting, The Raft of the Medusa, Lake proposes a vision of a humanity adrift. A physical dance like a pagan ritual, jostled by images of a powerful scenography, Le cri des méduses both promises and delivers a startling artistic shock.
Such a surprising and stunning work, Le cri des méduses, is the definition of what TITAS/UNFILTERED was designed to celebrate!
“The piece skillfully conjures … the illusion that this scandalous event painted in The Raft of the Medusa is coming to life before our eyes.”
