Big talent for Little Lady”


http://www.lfpress.com/entertainment/stage/2012/06/13/19874666.html

A physically-convoluted figure lies on the floor as the lights came on. In the next few minutes I watched Sandrine Lafond, creator and performer, shaping and shifting her body like she has no bones in her body. Her exaggerated facial expressions and non-verbal language demonstrated how talented she is for a physical theater performer… Her metamorphic personalities deliver a myriad of emotions: pain, happiness, excitement, sexiness and astonishment”

Lafond takes a step towards unique theatre artistry with her show, Little Lady. This artist, gifted with a remarkable talent and daring nature puts together a show to be remembered.

Winnipeg

 

Lafond is magnetic and conveys tremendous emotional depth through her instrument- a finely tuned body that is as precise as prose and as fluid as poetry”

Calgary

 

She’s a little bit ET, a little bit Pina Bausch, and a little bit Sid from the Ice Age movies… It’s admirable to see works that pushes the boundaries of narrative theater. Lafond is a gifted performer”

Edmonton

 

Her performance is an achievement in the combination of artistic expression and physical ability… Insect-human hybrids have been heard of before, but Little Lady is a unique take on the concept…
 It’s clever, avant-garde”

I think everyone could fall in love with Little Lady”

http://cfuvfringefestival.wordpress.com/2012/08/29/tuesday-night-at-fringe/

Without Lafond, this show probably couldn’t be staged. She conveys a journey through her impossibly expressive face, mind-boggling movements and wild vocal sounds. It’s the kind of performance that requires unfailing energy and concentration, yet also needs a playful, fluid spirit. Though there’s no dialogue, the show fills the silence with music and recorded sounds, as well as sets the stage with a short film. It’s an effective use of multimedia (which can overwhelm some productions) and an interesting, appealing way to set the stage”

Her mix of clown and bouffon was divinely scrumptious, and very edible”

http://news.gvpta.ca/2012/09/10/fringe-beginnings/

Perfect and extraordinary… As a dancer, a clown and an actor- Lafond makes every moment, gesture and facial expression precise, perfect and extraordinary- twisting her body into positions that would cripple most people”

http://www.plankmagazine.com/review/little-lady-she-just-may-transform-you

Ohhh… sweet bliss. She is lovely, tormented, sugary, ugly, bumpy, ritualistic and absolutely compelling to spy on. Her mix of clown and bouffon was divinely scrumptious. Her feet seemed to have a brain their own. Little Lady is a multi-media show that keeps its message clear, without any dialogue, and has just enough interaction with the audience to not get us nervous”
