Dance & Music; Music & Dance
Back in real life at the theatre, I am confronted again – full face – with my old worries – mine concern the immoderate love of baroque and or classical music. This is a love that is completely beyond me.
It will end up complexing me this story. How do they do it, the others, to talk to you about Bach for two hours ? and to go see him in the evening ?
Fortunately for my low self-esteem, I am not so alone on the roadside of great music.
And as a result, a certain number of artists have taken the time, the trouble and the patience, to take care of the case of the airheads who look like me.
It is the case of the company Mal Pelo.
They are Spanish – no: Catalans – but if you are far from my country, these subtleties probably escape you.
They are dancers and based in Barcelona.
For some years now, they have been busy dancing Bach.
In a company :
They go where the music inspires them
I, who don’t know much about dance, can see the influences of Spain, those angry feet that know how to hit the ground, those hands that undulate, that shady relationship with the other, shady and bright at the same time.
The funny thing is (can I talk about funny on this subject without sounding like a total iconoclast – well, yes yes, sorry, so sorry sorry, in this area I’m uneducated and iconoclastic) – well, then the funny thing is that I found myself watching them dance and thinking, ah yes, I wouldn’t have interpreted this tune like that, right there, at that second – which means that I have lent myself to the game without realizing it and that they have succeeded in bringing me to make this music that is so strange to me my own.
I believe that this is the great power of a project like the one that the Mal Pelo company is carrying.
