News - Spins and Spells

Monday, June 16, 2014
Jean-Baptiste Barrière has created a new dance video using the music of Kaija Saariaho. Spins and Spells for solo cello is performed by cellist Anssi Karttunen and dancer Romina Pedroli with choreography by Diana Theacharidis. In the programme note, Saariaho states “The title evokes the two gestures which are at the origin of the work: on the one hand the pattern which I call "spinning tops" turning around on the one spot or undergoing changes, and on the other, timeless moments, centred on the sound colour and texture.” The choreography in this video reflects these ideas.
