Neige

"It is white. So it is poetry. A poetry of great purity. It freezes nature and protects it. So it is a painting. The most delicate painting of winter. It is continually changing. So it is a calligraphy. There are ten thousand ways of writing the word snow. It is a slippery surface. So it is a dance. On snow any man can believe he is a tightrope walker. It turns into water. So it is music. In spring, it turns rivers and streams into symphonies of white notes."

Maxence Fermine, Snow

 

Carried by Beethoven's Symphony No.7, Neige is the lunar counterpart of Sinfonia Eroica. A work of maturity and contemplation. A dreamlike odyssey into immaculate expanses where enchantment fights it to the death. In the infinite content of a magnificent set design, weird beings wander around in the grip of violent feelings, doubt and finiteness. In the course of a subtle choreography outlined by the hollows beneath incessantly falling elements, they tell of burying, mourning and the loss of illusions.

De Mey, Michèle Anne

This has been a fantastic year for her. Kiss & Cry, an original stage object summoning up object theatre, music, words and nanochoreographies for four hands and dealing with the memory of feelings of love, has won unanimous international acclaim. People have emerged from the show overwhelmed and talking about their own emotional stories. She and Jaco Van Dormael have created it with a group of artists, making it a very personal experience since feelings of love, this thread running through her work, are in a way sublimated here: the film-maker is none other than her partner. Powerful music, telling of the affair from its fickle beginnings to the final split, is another constant in her work and woven into her choreographic universe: Beethoven’s 3rd Symphony in Sinfonia Eroica, the 7th in Neige and the Lamento d’Arianna in her latest piece, a solo she is creating specially for one of her faithful performers. All in all another declaration of love.

Michèle Anne De Mey is currently working on a solo for the dancer Gabriella Iacono based on Monteverdi’s Lamento d’Arianna.

In the 1970s, artists’ drive towards a new classic had been ongoing for more than a half century and several generations had already formed since the Russian Ballets. As the years went by, everyone defended or defends classical dance as innovative, unique, connected to the other arts and the preoccupations of its time.
