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.

Noémi演奏三首巴赫著名的大提琴組曲,並與Jörg出神入化的雜技互相配合。Jörg是一位出色的切爾克斯藝術家,他的演出糅合肢體表演、劇場、舞蹈及現代藝術。

Sarabande《薩拉班德》為巴赫其中一首家傳戶曉的大提琴組曲(No.1,3,及5)。三組意境細膩優雅的樂曲為高空鋼索特技人兼舞者Jörg的演出譜寫三場充滿生命力場景。第一幕,Jörg把點燃了的蠟燭放在桿子的末端,透過靈巧的身手來保持蠟燭的平衡。微弱和不穩定的火焰雖然脆弱,但卻具有柔韌的生命力。第二幕,他在一些吊管間如旋轉木馬般飛躍、旋轉,時而交錯,時而接觸,現場的觀眾都屏息靜氣地看著他歡快地舞動。最後一幕是和諧的第五次延續,他們之間的相會到了最引人入勝的時刻。

從表演一開始,音樂家以她對音樂細膩的傳繹,隨著雜耍藝術家的呼吸加劇。每一次,他都將迷人的Sarabande變成了一幅圖畫。
