Synopsis:
Starting with Maurice Ravel’s choreographic poem for orchestra, Thomas Hauert has produced an abstract composition in which intercerebrality, the mental space between the performers is experienced as a flock of birds unleashing the complexity of its figures, with no conductor and with no pre-established plan. The harmonies, the melodies, the counterpoints are translated, amplified or physically deflected by the dancers. The rhythms travel from body to body to form captivating polyphonies of movement, a dynamic to which Thierry De Mey presented a response in film: here he sets up the whirling rhetoric of acrobatics.
