Each dancert in sthis duet must be a musician. Harmony between music and performance is the base of the dance. Each on their own and altogether, they express a specific chord or sound, copying the music structure. Every Pas, adagio, lift, jump or motionlessness that dancers perform must be strictly coordinated with the music. Motion scale is identical to the music’s dynamic. Choreographical structure comes out of the musical structure. Dancers follow musical patterns coming from the musical instruments. Body language is being adapted from the music rhythm.
“Watching the last year of CHOREA festival I was delighted to notice the program concentrating around modern ballet technique. This was my biggest inspiration to creating this duet – to utilise modern motion language, based on classical dance.“
