Danse étoffée sur musique déguisée

2012 5+

Danse étoffée sur musique déguisée, ZOO’s first piece for a young audience, is a solo dance performance by Mat Voorter on John Cages’s Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano played live by the pianist Lea.

A prepared piano is a piano altered by all sorts of objects placed between its strings. Simple materials as screws, pieces of plastic or an eraser bring the instrument into acoustic territories as “unheard of” as they are strangely familiar. Applying this idea to the body, Thomas Hauert and Mat Voorter have developed a performance that, by deviating from theatrical narration, allows the imagination to unfold. Wrapped in a shell of balloons, blankets and other broomsticks, dancer Mat Voorter metamorphoses, putting his body to the test. On his journey, he encounters suggestive floating sculptures… In this performance nothing is normal, or rather: everything is extraordinary. Between poetry and humor, creation and destruction, Danse étoffée sur musique déguisée re-enchants the world by starting from purely physical constraints in relation to the matter.
