This elegantly re-imagined musical performance explores and deconstructs the traditional music concert format.
Working with composer Helmut Lachenmann and eight musicians, French choreographer Xavier Le Roy fractures and uncouples sounds and movements, events and silences, actions and stillness. A gradual transition in how we perceive the music unfolds, intensifying and enhancing the concert experience itself.
