DREI CHORÄLE / FILM
(Drei Choräle) is the first part of a five-part film directed by choreographer and director Isabella Soupart in collaboration with Flemish musical director and pianist Guy Vandromme. The film was presented as part of Klarafestival (the digital experience) on March 18, 2021, TV channel “Podium 19” VRT NU, Proximus Pickx and Dag van de Dans.
What if a choreographer and a musician make a film in which dance, architecture and the sonorous landscape of the city rub up against and fertilise each other?
The film functions as an alternative exhibition space where the majestic space of Wild Gallery in Forest forms the backdrop against which dancers perform figures from Isabella Soupart’s choreographic palette while Guy Vandromme plays slow, pared-down piano music by Eva-Maria Houben. Field recording & ambient sounds slip into the dramaturgy of the film to complete the soundscapes captured.
