the departed Heart

Work commissioned from the Norwegian company Carte Blanche

Commissioned work

Echo Flux is a double-bill pro­gramme pro­posed by Carte Blanche, the Nor­we­gi­an nation­al con­tem­por­ary dance com­pany, and based on the encounter between a cho­reo­graph­er and a com­poser. In the first part, the cho­reo­graph­er Alban Richard, is asso­ci­ated with the Franco-Argen­tinean com­poser Sebasti­an Rivas and the cos­tume design­er Rachel Gar­cia for the depar­ted Heart, a highly mel­an­chol­ic piece in which the dan­cers’ breath is trans­formed, in real time, into violas da gamba.

It is fol­lowed by Prim­al by the Argen­tine cho­reo­graph­er Ayelen Parolin and the French com­poser Ezra. Sámi rituals and beat­box­ing are the basis of this ener­get­ic piece that plunges the dan­cers into a search for their shamans.
