BA-Danse · Promo F : Spectacle de sortie – S. Sanchis & A. Söderberg
The students of class F present their graduation show, a program in two parts, each composed of an original creation of 30 to 40 minutes.
On the occasion of the centenary of Stravinsky's work, the Spanish choreographer Salva Sanchis proposes a choreographic score of The Wedding, inspired by what this work, which tells the story of a peasant wedding in four tableaux, evokes for him: music, tradition, family, freedom, restraint, joy, duty, rehearsal, dance, nature, family, culture, family, rehearsal, dance, music, the past, futurism, feminism.
Dance and music also come together in Alma Söderberg's creation Piece of ensemble, in which the dancers use both their voices and their bodies to compose the score accompanying their respective paths. Layered with polyrhythm, syncopation and lyrical and melodic explorations, both visual and auditory, this choreography is constructed in such a way as to create an ensemble that becomes a verb, a way of doing, where the individual and the group become equally necessary to the creative composition.
The choreographic creation of The Wedding took place during a four-week residency in Barcelona, under the direction of choreographer Salva Sanchis, as part of the creation of the graduation show of the students of the Bachelor's degree in Contemporary Dance, class F, whose first performance will take place at the Mercat de les Flors in Barcelona, and will then go on tour in Switzerland, France and Belgium. The show will open with Alma Söderberg's creation Piece of ensemble.
The creation and touring of this show was made possible thanks to the support of the Fondation Françoise Champoud and the Music and Performing Arts domain of the HES-SO.
