Ballet suite performed by seagulls in Rio
Brief video synopsis: For this year’s première, Brazilian seagulls choreograph a new work to Philip Glass’ Concerto n.9, one of the composer’s most admired music compositions. The ballet project, for 11 birds, was proudly sponsored by the Atlantic Ocean. "The themes and progressions from the music piece have been slightly altered in order to respect the performers natural rhythm. Instead of conducting intensive rehearsal practices we chose to let the birds follow their own pace and intuitively respond to the piano étude with spontaneous movements and sounds" Ms. Borges says.
