A love suprême

A love suprême

A love suprême

"A love suprême" is a classical music spell-binding and percussive. Regarded by large the critics as the major work of the composer Afro-American John Coltrane. This last was in search of a music which is understood by all the men and women of the ground, perhaps even by all the alive creatures on ground. One of the ideas that I retain this work could be formulated as follows: If I really express myself (plays or dances) with a deep humanity, then the humanity which is opposite me will be necessarily touched, because my humanity reveals that of different.
James Carlès

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
