Maguy Marin May B
To create May B, Maguy Marin drew inspiration from Samuel Beckett’s characters, who struggle to form human bonds in spite of the absurdity of life.
Her choreography builds upon their constantly interrupted circulations.
The piece, created in 1981 and now considered a masterpiece of contemporary dance, has been performed worldwide, and is still as riveting and subversive today as it was thirty years ago.
