After working with scores by Pierre Boulez, Rebecca Saunders and Gat himself for STORY WATER, his last production for Festival d’Avignon 2018, Emanuel Gat pursues his long time exploration of the meeting points between the choreographic and the musical, the visual and the auditory, and the potentials they hold for observation, study and story telling.
LOVETRAIN2020 unfolds within this charged space of references, counterpoints and endless possibilities, where movement and sound interact to once again, and from a different angle, reveal the obvious yet almost transparent layers in which people come together, drift apart, push and pull, question, resolute and move forward.
A contemporary “Musical” for 14 dancers, LOVETRAIN2020 will call upon the wonderful music of the 80s British duo Tears for Fears (Mad world, Shout, Everybody Wants to Rule The World, Change, Sowing The Seeds Of Love and many other incredible hits from that glorious decade). A choreographic ode to the sound and vibe of the 80s, as embodied in the music of Tears For Fears, with its utopic drive and epic groove.
Coup de coeur enfin pour Michael Loehr qui manifeste un plaisir communicatif à danser, et dont la présence, mutine et espiègle, offre notamment un très beau duo avec Rob Bridger au bel accord des corps, en esquisse un autre, troublant et fort – tant on y ressent LA MUSIQUE -, avec Eglantine Bart… et cabotine enfin seule dans un solo charismatique.”
