A choreographic 'event'
created on July 5th, 2013 at Festival Montpellier Danse
“Danses de cour” is a modular site-specific choreographic one-time event, which was premiered at Montpellier Danse Agora’s courtyard.
At its center lay a number of choreographic building blocks, highly flexible in their editing and structuring options, relating to the immediate environment in which they are performed. Music, lighting, costumes and set as well as the performance space itself (indoor or out) and audience configuration are conceived and set especially for each performance.
The closeness of spectators/performers is enhanced through the choices being made both in the specific pre-configuration of the event, and in real time by the dancers.
