CHORALE / LES 24 PRÉLUDES DE CHOPIN
The celebrated Marie Chouinard from Montréal presents a double programme: Throughout CHORALE, we can hear the changing rhythms of the breath as an impulse for abstract movement rituals. In “24 Préludes by Chopin”, each ending breathes out into a new beginning: Playfully, the brilliant ensemble of eleven dancers turns on pointe, cutting the air with flinging limbs. And giving way to the wing-like flapping of a solitary hand: suspended in mid-air, yet never to be caught – like impressionism itself.
