Noces / quatuor

In Noces / Quatuor (Wedding/quartet), Aurélien Richard questions the connections and tensions that develop between choreographic and musical structures, between the bodies of a dancer and a musician.

For this creation, Aurélien Richard questions the relationship (of force) between music and dance which plays out in “Noces” (The Wedding), a piece from 1923 composed by Igor Stravinsky, choreographed by Bronislava Nijinska with set design by Natalia Gontcharova.

Based on transcripts of the original choreography and the photographic and film evidence of various versions of the work, Aurélien Richard establishes a supply of thirteen postures. By varying the organisation and interpretative qualities of these postures and by relying on the tempi of the music, he allows his four dancers to commit to the extreme precision of Nijinska's movement, but also to reinvent these body states in the present.

Richard, Aurélien

Pianist, composer and choreographer, Aurélien Richard performs as both a soloist and a chamber musician and plays with the Diotima quartet, the pianist Vanessa Wagner but also with ensembles like 2E2M or Les Siècles. At the same time, he collaborates on choreographic projects with William Forsythe, David Wampach, Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud, Mié Coquempot, Maud Le Pladec, Gaël Sesboüé and Alban Richard. He writes his own shows and performances, including “Hoketus”, a choreographic and musical work, created in 2009 at the Printemps de Septembre in Toulouse. He and Christine Caradec presented a training programme aimed at professionals, from 8 - 12 April 2013 at the CND (National Dramatic Centre): “Stratégies d'écriture et d'improvisation à partir du carcan postural des Noces de Bronislava Nijinska” (Strategies of writing and improvisation starting from the postural constraints of Bronislava Nijinska's Noces).

Meeting with literature

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.
