4 SEASONS - A piece by Samir Calixto
NOMINATED for the Zwaan 'MOST IMPRESSIVE DANCE PRODUCTION' 2013
4 Seasons follows up Calixto’s investigation over themes like impermanence and transformation while approaching milestones of the classical music repertoire. By diving into the vivid and timeless essence of Vivaldi’s masterpiece, the choreography traces a parallel between the notion of seasons and the ages of mankind – the dawn and crepuscule of civilization according to many ancient philosophies. Here two dancers are challenged to incorporate these ideas while dealing with the music striking forces. The result is a choreography in which the lavishness of the music composition contrasts to the collective sense of disorientation and desolation in times of change.
