BOLÉRO _ TWO
Emio Greco I Pieter C Scholten
with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Marseille
8 & 9.05 2015 - 8PM
MARSEILLE OPERA HOUSE
This Dance & Music program will be performed in Marseille, in a special configuration that brings together the Orchestre Philharmonique de Marseille, the Ballet National de Marseille and the International choreographic arts centre ICKamsterdam.
Since the start of their careers in choreography in the mid-1990’s, the new directors of the Ballet National de Marseille have worked on boundaries and the body’s limits. From the outset it was about looking for their own way of creating an aesthetic, social and even political discourse centred on dance. The two pieces performed here powerfully epitomise the essence of their research.
In the first part of the evening, the duet Two is a kind of virtuoso explosion of Greco and Scholten’s approach.
This piece created for two dancers ok ICKamsterdam focuses on the utopia of synchronicity or how to share the same movement in the same space at the same time, with all the ruptures – or rebellions – that are implied. Another essential issue explored in Greco│Scholten’s work.
In Boléro, the BNM’s dancers perform a dance that is as technical as it is volcanic and sensual, confronting Maurice Ravel’s great monument. The virtuosity is skilfully staged in an environment that is minimal, extreme and entrancing. For these performances in Marseille Opera House, the choreography is being accompanied by the Orchestre Philharmonique de Marseille, strengthening the osmosis between dance and music.
