“Le Do(s) Transfiguré” with Les Musicales du Luberon
« Les Musicales du Luberon » want to make a contribution towards the fundraising for the hospital modernisation.They will put on a music and dance show on July 25 in the quarries at Lacoste and the proceeds will go to the hospital fund.
Agnès Letestu, lead dancer at the Opéra de Paris and Edna Stern have created this show, fruit of their close collaboration.They have achieved a complete symbiosis between music and dance, the piano becoming a dancer and the dancers becoming sounds, the whole enhanced by the play of light.They want to draw the spectators into a dream in which body movement invades their perception of sounds.
Edna describes it thus :” It will be like a series of dreams, musical dreams and dance dreams following on and bringing us back to the pure magic of the dream.”
Agnès says : “It’s an ensemble which takes us into a universe in which both musical and choreographic elements change and this change leads us towards new visions.”
How does this musical transfiguration express itself ?
Edna : “It’s the Do note.Everything starts from this with a perfect harmony such as Bach’s Do minor and each composer draws on this for his own vision of his work.
Agnès : the Do transformed”
Music always comes back to this Do or evokes dance steps like the Bach Fantasy, the Ballade or the Nocturnes by Chopin, the Clair de Lune or the Cakewalk by Debussy.
