Dance on a repertory play of the minimalist repetitive music! Since its creation in the 1970s, Steve Reich’s opus had never been performed in a setting where the public can dance.

 

With Music for 18 Musicians, the conductor Rémi Durupt and the choreographer Sylvain Groud confronted the specificities and necessities of their art to create a common score. Supported by transmitting dancers, Sylvain Groud invites a hundred amateur dancers to feel the physical and mental sensation provoked by listening to Steve Reich’s piece and creates an inclusive choreography. A series of rehearsals enables the understanding of the musical pulsations of this hypnotizing work, to discover and share simple body movements, moves, contacts and eye contacts. On the evening of the danced concert, professionals and amateurs are embedded in the audience to create a collective experience: feeling, transmitting and exchanging the positive energy of this work. Sylvain Groud wishes to invite amateur dancers and also the audience to occupy the space of public institution, to appropriate it together. The amateur dancers are the vector between the artists and the audience, between the work offered and the space receiving it.
