365 thèmes et 52 variations - duo Games
This piece is based on the 365 jazz themes that the pianist Antoni Vaquer composed each day of the year 2010 and the 52 choreographic themes that Juliette Louste created each week of this same year from one of the musical themes of the week. On May 2010, both artists put together this important base material creating then their first duo GAMES.
It is a variable geometric set. Each variation-concert built from the general corpus can be put in relation with one or more others, for the creation of a universe where music and dance are in perfect harmony because closely linked in their elaboration. As with music, each danced variation is developed according to the structure: theme-improvisation-theme. Over the performance a sound and gestural ambiance is defined with the selected themes and the colour given by the two artists to their partly improvised interpretation.
In this simple succession of “stories” without narration or dramaturgy, the relation dance-music is appreciated in a very refined manner on the highest level of its richness and interest.
