Karen Bernard appeared on CIUT’s Evi-dance this weekend and gave an in depth look at her influences and her inspiration for Ouette | o’et.
“I’ve been doing a lot of travelling in the last couple years, and so the piece is really about independence, being independent; my reflections and the way I’m travelling. The Swimming Pool, which I had seen on one of my residencies, is a about an English woman writer who goes to France, to write, to have some solitude and to create, but she gets involved in a very erotic thriller drama. I’ve always been connected to travel, and so that’s where I started. I parallel my own personal story, very fragmented, but inspired by this movie.”
