PlayBach

To revisit Bach’s oeuvre, Yuval Pick and his dancers created a playlist of the classic works in the Bach repertory. Using an Ipod, they zap from one excerpt to another, creating their own acoustic space in real time.

Based on this musical universe, Yuval Pick created a choreographic score, based on an exploration of the concept of weight: working with the weight of another person means accepting him or her with all his or her baggage, constantly adjusting, being transformed by his or her touch.

The piece renders this kind of communication visible, signs of a heightened awareness of the other partner, the use of a common vocabulary which has developed out of the relationships between the performers.
