Sextette

Music: Awir Leon

Dancers: Jacqueline Bâby, Kristina Bentz, Tyler Galster, Graziella Lorriaux, Leoannis Pupo-Guillen, Raul Serrano Núñez. 

Sextette is a work which looks to separate the habitual linkage between a certain movement style or technique, and a specific choreographic language. The canonic classical ballet material, is present in this work within a contemporary way of thinking about the choreographic process. Classical variations, are thrown into a contemporary work space, elaborated around the notions of collaborative and horizontal systems, real-time organisation of structures, fluid story-lines, changing dynamics and an active on stage relations between the dancers. The work is a questioning on possible avenues on how to both build upon the masters of the past, while moving away from them.
