Flowers (we are)
Flowers (we are) is Claire Croizé’s first time working with a contemporary composer: Matteo Fargion. Selections from the preludes of Bach’s Das Wohltemperierte Klavier, transcripts of his choir for four hands, and new compositions all form the musical fabric, performed on one piano by Fargion and his daughter Francesca. Three dancers translate this vision into motion. They pay homage to the grand master of the baroque in a playful and slightly subversive way. Just like in EVOL, Croizé adds elements from pop music and a poetic and melancholy imaginary world to the poems of Rainer Maria Rilke. This creates a tension between personalities and generations, dancers and musicians, and dance and music.
