Suite of TOUCH
A suite for 7 international dance artists and 3 musicians playing live on baroque instruments.
To be touched physically can give emotional reactions. Likewise, to be emotionally touched can give us physical reactions. In meetings where we touch our selves or each other, we are moved. We feel connected and alive. We get excited, nervous or we feel joy. Some people even say that ’to touch’ is as essential for survival as ’to breathe’.
In a close interaction with the expressive music composed by Marin Marais and Monsieur de Sainte-Colombe, Camilla Stage together with musician and consultant Mogens Rasmussen presents a suite of sophisticated ornamental dances. A suite that – room by room, touch by touch – creates the performance and its changeable and playful patterns of movements.
Stage director and choreographer Camilla Stage has gathered an impressive string of charismatic and international dance artists. The music will be performed live on the baroque instruments viola de gamba, theorbe and harpsichord.
Duration: 1 hour.
