Ballet de l'Opéra-Théâtre de Metz Métropole (France)

part of the Modern Music Days       


Music Max Richter*
Choreography Gleb Lyamenkoff
Video Tommy Laszlo
The music of world-renowned British composer Max Richter, inspires the dancers to emotionally express their individual natures. With a renewed abandonment of the confines of reality, they transition into a new collectiveness and open into new horizons revealing Chancel as that vital space of transition between the real and the absolute.
"The ballet, “Chancel”, appears to comes from afar and awakens our visceral core. The proximity of the dancers, the low intensity of the light, and the staging: all elements that lead to the intimate domain of raw emotion."
La Semaine
World Premiere
Music Ruben Zahra
Choreography Gleb Lyamenkoff
Video Tommy Laszlo and Baptiste Leydecker
The music of Spirall for flute and percussion, by Maltese composer Ruben Zahra, evokes primordial Mediterranean ritual. The music takes its name from the decorative spirals found in the Neolithic temples of the Maltese islands. This iconographic motif is also at the basis of the choreography and the video, transposing ancient ritual to a contemporary and universal dimension.
