La Cantatàpied (2000-01)

Creation within the framework of the European Culture 2000 program

In 2001, the children set out in search of a secret, sacred instrument, endowed with natural powers that was hidden in a distant land. The booklet tells the story of their journey and quest from their departure from the city to their arrival at the sea.

47 on stage, it is  a mass, a crowd, a swarm, a demonstration, two rival bands, a column, a line, a chorus. The song is the cement of the show, the choreography, the basis of the construction of the corypheus as in those forgotten times where theatre and dance were inseparably linked.

For a dancer, the stage is never empty but carries invisible traces of a geometry that draws a circle, a line, a ravine, angles, a mountain, points, a forest, a river.The lyrics were written by the children upon the melodies chosen from the works of Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály, Hungarian composers.
