Music by Gavin Bryars Biped
/ Carsten Nicolai, alva noto unitxt'
is a signature piece of Merce Cunningham’s late body of works. 42 minutes of pure dance co-exist on stage without correlation to projection and music.
„It was one of the first new musical compositions commissioned by Merce Cunningham since the death of John Cage in 1992. Like all of Merce‘s work it involved a collaboration with visual artists, in this case Paul Kaiser and Shelley Eshkar who had developed a very striking technique of video motion capture. In working on the music Merce and I agreed that we would follow the method established between himself and John Cage of working independently but towards a common goal, thereby avoiding any planned one-to-one relationship between music, dance and décor.”
(Composer Gavin Bryars about BIPED
Ballet by Richard Siegal
„…suddenly, Richard Siegal stops the rehearsal, tells what he intended to insert here and there, asks the audience for their opinion, drops all inquiries and jumps to the next scene (…) it takes a while to realize what game is being played here – but even then, a hint of uncertainty is left behind. The means of presentation are chosen intentionally: the casual tone of voice, the official tone, minute details in choreographed passages where he articulates every single muscle like a cat, stand-up comedy followed by solemn seriousness. A wide-spectrum.” – TANZ magazine wrote about Richard Siegal as choreographer and performer. His new creation is yet to be named.
