STEVE REICH PROJECT

Dance Music Performance

The Steve Reich project latches on two iconic works by Steve Reich : Different Trains and WTC 9/11. It combines in resonance two historic and political temporalities. Together with the MP4 Quartet, choreographer and visual artist Isabella Soupart sketches out a choregraphic score toying with phasing and dephasing musical alternations that redefine a given space through the application of infinite mutations : a redefined space tensioned up by Kurt d’Haeseleer’s video image. A dancer and four musicians fill the stage. Each performer, from their own perspective, is free to choose, interact or intervene. The choreography is jumbled as it is exposed to an infinity of mutations in time and space. Gradually, however, a time line emerges and becomes apparent.
