[Meet] Anna Huber

Tuesday, April 25th at 6:00pm
Pavillon Noir, Studio Bagouet, Aix-en-Provence

Exploring movement in its complex simplicity, the choreographer Anna Huber questions dance as a language at the interface of performing and visual arts, perpetually in friction between abstraction and emotion.
At Camargo, she is working on "Horizon". She explores it in a multi-layered artistic investigation in its fascinating paradoxes: threshold or limitation as well as opening, embodying the need to expand one's horizons, to move further and beyond and the desire for transformation. An unreachable but clearly visible line, always present but changing with the observers’ perspective and perception, appearing and disappearing. A line as well as a surface, like a skin between water and air. Movement explores the body in landscape that itself is in constant movement and change as well as the body as landscape. The senses of equilibrium and orientation oscillate between stability and mobility. The fragile nature of human existence and its precarious balance create singular intensities within the constant transformation of the scenery's physical and sensorial impact. What traces do human presence and movement leave in space and memory?

The meeting will be led by Julie Chenot, Program Director of the Camargo Foundation.

[Concert] Gérard Grisey, Christopher Trapani, L'itinéraire, ICE: "Spectral Streams"

Friday, May 19th at 9:00pm
Friche La Belle de Mai, Marseille

The ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble, New York) and the French new-music group Ensemble Itinéraire come together for this French-American concert. Gérard Grisey is one of the most influential composers of the second half of the 20th century. Pioneer of spectral music, he discovered a new way of composition in-between science and music, where the matter of sound is built upon its physical reality, which will become an example for many composers around the world.
Christopher Trapani and Ashley Fure, two young American composers, drew their inspiration from two emblematic pieces composed by Gérard Grisey, "Partiels" et "Périodes". The core of the program is the way in which this younger generation of American composers looks at the legacy of spectral music.

The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) will be in residence at the Camargo Foundation from May 15 to 20.
