In a rare New York appearance, France’s Centre Chorégraphique National Ballet de Lorraine, directed by Petter Jacobsson with its 25 dancers, presents an evening of two works: Cela nous concerne tous (This Concerns All Of Us), choreographed by Miguel Gutierrez; and For Four Walls, choreographed by Petter Jacobsson and Thomas Caley.
Recommended for ages 16+.
CELA NOUS CONCERNE TOUS (THIS CONCERNS ALL OF US), choreographed by Miguel Gutierrez
CELA NOUS CONCERNE TOUS (THIS CONCERNS ALL OF US) takes its inspiration (and title) from the May 1968 social and political movements in France. Driven by a shared fervor, the dancers unfurl in a constantly changing chaos of colors, sounds, garments and moving bodies.
For Four Walls, choreographed by Petter Jacobsson and Thomas Caley
For Four Walls draws upon Four Walls, the first collaboration between Merce Cunningham and John Cage. Rather than recreating the original 1944 piece, they have used the score for piano and voice as the driving force behind this free interpretation. Performed live by the pianist Vanessa Wagner, the melancholic atmosphere of John Cage’s music hovers over the interplay between the mirrored room and movements.
