OPRL+ Dance : Górecki, Sorrowful songs

Séries
Description

One of the world’s best-known contemporary works, Górecki's Third Symphony (1976) was at odds with the complex avant-garde style of the time. Its slow, ethereal movements form a captivating triptych that enthralled a whole generation of New Age youth and remains as relevant today as it ever was. Following in the footsteps of Dawn Upshaw and Beth Gibbons (lead singer of Portishead), it's now Jodie Devos' turn to perform the sorrowful songs of this hymn to love (a mother's for her son and a teenage girl's for the Virgin Mary), a constant back-and-forth between light and shadow, ending with a sense of hope. The choreography by the master of urban dance, Kader Attou, performed by the Accrorap company, who will be taking over the Manège at the Caserne Fonck, is striking for its emotional power and its lust for life.
