The great musicality of Emanuel Gat’s works is truly captivating. By invitation of the Ensemble Modern, he is developing a very special piece at the Frankfurt LAB, bringing fifteen musicians and ten members of his dance company on stage in a piece, which premieres in July 2018 at the Festival d’Avignon at Cours d’honneur du Palais de Pape, before returning to Frankfurt as part of this year’s Tanzfestival Rhein-Main. The concept is unusual. One part of the choreography is being developed on the basis of finished scores by Pierre Boulez and Rebecca Saunders, while the other utilizes innovative an method: dancers and musicians create a musical-choreographic full score together, in which the gestures of sound generation and of dance merge – elegantly overstepping and dissolving established boundaries and responsibilities.
