  • Fuel | Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal
    Soto Costume Design Cayetano Soto Lighting Director Daniel Ranger Costumes Production Anne Marie Veevaete Sound Design Antoine Bédard North American Premiere Halifax NS Canada November 2011 Duration 22 minutes Fuel In his new choreography Cayetano Soto is inspired by Fuel a piece for string orchestra by the American composer Julia Wolfe who transforms the modern industrial world of fuels and machines into clanking string sounds Soto transfers to human bodies this idea of a single substance that keeps the world moving restlessly as if the dancers too were driven by one secret energy The choreography works with contrasts between dynamic technically virtuous Pas de Deux and Trios on the one hand and static moments on the other hand In those moments of apparent slowdown the dancers are standing alone but are unable to achieve any rest Instead they perform little nervous jerky movements as if they were being recharged Thus they may eventually be swept away again by the ado returning to burn their energy until the tank is empty Press The world premiere that followed Fuel by Spanish choreographer Cayetano Soto was so frenzied so agitated and so persistently aggressive that it provoked feelings of anxiety and mental exhaustion

    Lighting Design Daniel Ranger Duration 36 min World Premiere October 2006 Albany NY U S A Photographer Grégory Batardon Les Chambres des Jacques LES CHAMBRES DES JACQUES establishes a form of dialogue between the choreographer and dancers an almost interactive exploration focused on a human dimension that oscillates between daily life and the grotesque the banal and the unexpected This choreography was hailed by the critics and the public during its recent international tour In order to let real life exude from the performer s bodies Aszure Barton says that she transformed the dance studios into a true asylum of peace or of madness or battle Such a place open to all possibilities could allow for the emergence of a raw authentic matter both intimate and universal Exploring all forms and shapes of the individual down to the roots of her animal physicality Aszure Barton has interwoven her piece with the personal habits and styles which she has observed among dancers details which make up their individual personalities and those marvelous little imperfections which speak of the beauty and fragility of being Press A world of wonder A rare accomplishment in the world of contemporary dance Barton alarmingly original voice
