Performed in the program of ‘Tanz ueber Graben’ - Sacre 100 years
'Igor - hush hush'
The almost impossible arithmetic of Stravinsky's musical language is what is explored in 'Igor-hush hush'. Studying part one of 'The Rite of Spring' - The Adoration of the Earth, the poly-rhythmic score acts as the framework in which an attempt of a choreographic translation is explored - in silence. The performers seek to embody the score in it's most primitive sense, allowing the birth of a musical dance language to evolve.
