WORKS [Excerpts]
Chorégraphy: Emanuel Gat
Assistant: Thomas Bradley
Music: Yann Robin

The Ballet Junior de Genève is inviting for the fist time Emanuel Gat who will be offering a work based on two existing pieces:

« Comme on dit chez nous, si il pleut, c’est qu’il va pleuvoir »

Large groups are different than small ones. Creating a system which manages smoothly and clearly 20 dancers, calls for different adjustments and specific adaptations from those for smaller groups. The shift in scales, complexity and the density of the information to be structured, reveals the inner logics and mechanics of human groups. Choreography as an experiment in social studies, decision making, collaborative strategies, question of efficiency, equality and the distribution of resource. The work is build around the 'cause and effect’ relations between responsibility and freedom.


COUZ I and II, are two un-identical twin pieces, created under the same set of choreographic tools and procedures, with two different groups of ten dancers from both companies. The works are an experiment with real time choreography, and with the elaboration of mechanics relating to choreography as an event being assembled in real time. The dancers are ‘driving’ the piece and recreating it each time anew, examining the role of the performer as an onstage, live creator.
