Florentin Ginot and Alban Richard
For this joint creation, Alban Richard and Florentin Ginot, the composer associated with the ccncn, have imagined a singular, modern soundscape, explored relentlessly by bodies in movement.
Choreographer and performer Alban Richard and composer and instrumentalist Florentin Ginot have embarked on a collaboration in the fullest sense of the word, co-authoring a piece that will bring them together on stage. Borrowing its title from the novel A Sentimental Journey by writer Laurence Sterne, where “sentimental” means resistance to the supremacy of reason, A Sentimental Landscape plays on the loss of landmarks within a sound cartography. The duo’s research focuses on an intense musical composition, a polyphony of voices (spoken, blown) that activates and triggers movements, sounds, affects and emotions. In this shifting soundscape, double bass motifs, machine rhythms and loops leave no respite for the bodies of the performers. Prisoners of intertwined temporalities, the bodies endure Le dur désir de durer, as delineated by Paul Éluard: “Our bodies are against each other, we are down to earth. We are born from everywhere, we are without limits”. The piece creates and modulates an island of gestures, words and sounds, around which the audience takes its place. An autonomous island that can be set up in a theater, a museum, a gymnasium, an underground parking lot or in the heart of a hundred-year-old forest.+ More
