Room with a view

Room with a view

Room with a view (captation)

In just a few albums, Rone has secured his place as one of the  most influential French producers around, putting some of his own soul  into electro. He is now adding another dimension to his career with the  creation of the show Room with a View and his eponymous fifth  album. Having been invited by the Théâtre du Châtelet for a carte  blanche, he was keen to work with (LA)HORDE and consequently with the  twenty dancers of the Ballet National de Marseille.

In a marble quarry, various machines are in action, cutting and  polishing the rock. In this otherworldly place and behind his machines,  Rone sculpts sweeping electronic and emotional landscapes that he offers  to a group of dancers.

While sculptors worked with marble to “free the human form inside the  block” (Michelangelo), the performers dance to escape the stones’ white  immobility, rising up to scrutinise the infinitely human contours of  impending disaster and envisaging the very possibility of its beauty.

(LA)HORDE continues to explore forms of protest and rebellion through dance. Room with a View  is a blank page, a space devised as a naturalist white cube in which  sounds, bodies and images can be inscribed to reflect on the shifting  place of humanity. For Rone it provides the opportunity required for a  new album, a unique performance in which the cries of his machines  resonate, inviting us to break away and trace vanishing lines towards  songs that exist far beyond mankind itself.

 Rone, whose real name is Erwan Castex, born in Boulogne-Billancourt, is a French electronic musician. In just a few records, Rone has established himself as a major figure in the French electronic scene. Eager for encounters and artistic experiences, he married his beats with the imaginaries of novelists (Alain Damasio), choreographers (La Horde), classical composers (Benjamin Britten) and film directors (Frédéric Farrucci).

Ballet national de Marseille

Back in 1972, Roland Petit created the Ballets de Marseille. Having lost  its -s, the Ballet has become a Centre Chorégraphique National in 1984  wille  be run by the collective (LA)HORDE. 

The creation and  dissemination of shows by the Ballet and guest artists are at the heart  of what it does. Very much rooted in our time, curious about and open to  the world, the BNM is also a prestigious part of Marseille’s cultural  heritage, close to Parc Borély.
