Get Higher

Get Higher, of the choreographer Wayne Barbaste, fact part of the repertory Modern French jazz. To cross this part of the repertoire enables us to return to the roots of Modern Jazz to France and to trace the evolution of it, with the image of the choreographic work of Wayne Barbaste who did not cease evolving since 1978. Wayne Basbaste builds his partition with very rich and subtle rhythmic reasons. The relation music/dance is very strong and present throughout the part. The music of Get Higher was composed by Bob Telson for the musical production Gospel At Colonus of Lee Breuer, a version gospel of Oedipus with Column of Sophocle, created for the first time at New York in the Eighties.

Barbaste, Wayne

Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, his career as a dancer began in 1977, in Africa and the Caribbean, to continue in the United States (Alvin Ailey Repertory Company). His career as a choreographer began in 1978 (West Indies Trinidad University, Louisiana Dance Foundation United States). In 1985, he moved to France where he worked with the Compagnie Rick Odums, Off Jazz Gianin Loringett then Anne-Marie Reynaud. Welcomed in permanent residence in Cesson-Sévigné (35), he created the Cie CALABASH in 1992. From then on, he began a research work on Jazz dance in order not to break with his choreographic origins while confirming his membership in the current creation. This research is more precise with what he calls “Jazz New Concept”, where he questions the musicality of the body which induces the danced movement.

Armstrong, Géraldine

Born in the Grenade island, Géraldine Armstrong studies the dance in London with Johnny O'Brien and Molly Molloy and continues her studies in Paris with André Glegolski, Jacqueline Fynnaert, Matt Mattox, Gianin Loringett. She co-founds in 1998 with Wayne Barbaste the Armstrong Jazz Ballet, who is called today "Black Source Dance Theater". Géraldine Armstrong knew to remain faithful to the single style of Alvin Ailey, composed of an alliance of the ballet dancing and black traditional dance, on the one hand, and of a brilliant comprehension of the most various musics and their relationship with the specificity of the movement, on the other hand.

Carlès, James
