Pneuma, choreography by Carolyn Carlson

Pneuma - Air and dreams
Choreography by Carolyn Carlson
Opéra National de Bordeaux Ballet
Composer, Gavin Gryars
National Bordeaux Aquitaine orchestra
Conductor, Pieter-Jelle de Boer

In March 1999, Carolyn Carlson and the Opéra de Bordeaux ballet premiered 'Hydrogen Jukebox', a fascinating choreography with music by Philip Glass. The choreographer is back this season with an exciting project drawing its inspiration from an essay by French philosopher Gaston Bachelard, 'Air and dreams'. This time the music is by Gavin Bryars, a 'post-minimalist' composer who previously worked with William Forsythe, Lucinda Childs, Maguy Marin, Jirí Kylián and Merce Cunningham. Carlson's choreography explores the duality of the human being, between body and soul, gravity and elevation, matter and mind. An ode to human nature, at once passionate and poetic.
