Le French May: Sarabande

23 May, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm HKT

Three of the famous Suites for cello of J.S. Bach played by Noémi Boutin, interlaced in the extraordinary juggleries of Jörg Müller, outstanding Circassian artist who reconciles a pure physical performance with theatre, dance and contemporary art.
Sarabande is a triptych rhythmed by the famous Suites for Cello of J.S Bach, No. 1, 3, and 5 from where the cellist expresses delicacy and elegance. Her music comes to embrace around three living pictures performed by the tightrope walker and dancer Jörg Müller. In the first picture, Jorg holds his balance with manipulating a candle lit and putting at the end of a pole. The frail and unstable flame asserts its soft vitality despite its fragility. Then, he flies a merry-go-round of suspended tubes. We contemplate them to spin, to touch, to live together without ever disrupting this merry dance. Finally, it is in the fifth continuation for harmonies so intense and deep as the meeting arrives at its peak.
From now on, it is the musician who is suspended, her fragility of interpreter aggravated by the air vaulting which the juggler breathes. And every time, he “turns into pictures” this mesmerizing Sarabande of Bach.
