BALLET DE LORRAINE “Triple Bill”

Ballet de Lorraine, one of the most important companies working in Europe, presents 3 selected works of choreography in Kyoto. Renowned for their experimental repertoire from late 20th century to contemporary, the company will showcase some rich and extensive works of contemporary ballet: SOUNDDANCE by Merce Cunningham, STEPTEXT by William Forsythe and the Japanese premier of DEVOTED by Bengolea & Chaignaud. STEPTEXT was performed at Kyoto Kaikan (currently the Rohm Theater) in 1991 by Frankfurt Dance Company led by Forsythe. The work returns to the new establishment after 27 years. This year also commemorates the 160 year relationship between Japan and France as well as the 60th anniversary of the Friendship Agreement between Paris and Kyoto.

About

上演作品

“DEVOTED” choreographed by Cecilia Bengolea & François Chaignaud
“SETPTEXT” choreographed by William Forsythe
“SOUNDDANCE” choreographed by Merce Cunningham

『DEVOTED』

A work by one of the leading dance units in Europe, Bengolea & Chaignaud. This unusual dance piece is a complex dancehall, folk performing art and contemporary art hybridization. Their radical reinterpretation of pointe shoes meets with the minimal tone of Philip Glass and embraces the audience in the sublime.

『STEPTEXT』 

Early masterpiece of Forsythe, the revolutionary of ballet.
The sensual tones of string instruments meet stoic movement stripped from its context. Occasional suggestive gestures leaves us with searching questions.

『SOUNDDANCE』

One of the outstanding works by Merce Cunningham, the legend of post modern dance. Ruling out the emotional expression of modern dance, the work explores the pure relationship of dance with music. It established Cunningham’s exquisite style.
