When choreographer Angelin Preljoaj meets contemporary composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, the result is Helikopter (2001), a highly metallic piece. Composed to the sound of a string quartet recorded in a helicopter in midflight, the dances gain a fresh new musicality with dissonances hovering between the bluish waves rolling over the ground and the endless shadows.
The dancers’ sole reference point in this arid ballet is each other’s bodies. The dancers elbow and knee their way to cling to invisible hopes. From rigidity emerges fluidity, from rigor an entirely new and unexpected form of beauty.
Helikopter will be followed by Still Life, a new creation by Angelin Preljocaj.
“In the realm of painting, still lifes sometimes represent an allegory of death, time and the vacuity of passions.
From the 17th century onwards, the idea of boundedness and the derisory aspect of life form a wholly separate genre: ‘the Vanities’. Henceforth the objects represented on the canvases symbolise human activities with elements that evoke the passing of time: fragility, destruction, war and the triumph of death.
These same problems are at stake in this work. The bodies of the dancers exude a specific choreographic writing, a reflection on what these ancestral symbols say to us today.”
