A project closely associate dance with music
The energy and vivacity of 6 dancers crystallize in as many scenes, during multiple confrontations and interlocking movements, for an hour-long program that echoes the semiotic declinations of the work’s title.
The Philippe Fénelon’s score, which oscillates between reticence and exuberance, even risks a two-step of the popular version of the pasodoble. With clarinet, trumpet, accordion, percussions, bass.
Pasodoble can be performed by dancers and musicians. The scenic configuration remains to be defined (all on stage, or stage/pit), and will integrate the specific requirements of participating theaters and operating partners during the initial tour.
The love of music
If their original encounter occurred on stage at the Paris Opera, their relationship solidified during the Cadenza/K.danza project in 2002 around the idea of a soloist work: Michel Kelemenis invited Philippe Fénelon to create the music for Pasodoble.
Kelemenis approached Philippe Fénelon to create the music for Pasodoble, which is based on an intuitive blend of festive arias and taurine sound tracks mixed with the less expected sonorities of contemporary expressions. The musical ensemble TM+ conducted by Laurent Cuniot adopts a particular geometry for this project which includes fanfare instrumentation that alternates between the pasodoble and the new composition by Fénelon using slides and frictions.
