Already the subject of several biographies and plays and of a 1988 film (Camille Claudel, starring Isabelle Adjani and Gérard Depardieu), the troubled relationship between sculptors Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel has now inspired a new creation from choreographer Peter Quanz and Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, which will have its world premiere tonight. "I believe that their respective work influenced each other, and that their relationship intensified the emotional content of their sculpture," says Quanz. "Camille Claudel was a tragic figure, a victim of her time and of the men who were closest to her. This is a story of passion, love and betrayal." At Place des Arts’ Théâtre Maisonneuve, October 13-15, 20, 22, 27-29.
