THOMAS HAUERT Danse étoffée sur musique déguisée

Buy ticket


This solo work, with live music, is based on Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano by John Cage. A prepared piano is a piano altered by objects positioned between the strings. These simple materials take the instrument into both “unknown” and familiar acoustic territories. Applying the same idea to the body, Hauert and Voorter have created a piece that deviates from any kind of theatrical narrative to let the imagination run wild.

In 1998, the Swiss dancer Thomas Hauert formed his own company of contemporary dance ZOO/Thomas Hauert and has created more a dozen pieces which have toured all over the world. He has also created pieces for e.g. P.A.R.T.S., the Zurich Ballet, Toronto Dance Theatre and Candoco Dance Company. Hauert is the academic director of the new bachelor degree in contemporary dance at the school La Manufacture in Lausanne since 2014. In Barcelona he has presented Modify, Walking Oscar and Accords with ZOO and the duet From B to B with Angels Margarit and La mesura del desordre with the group La Bolsa.
