Bartabas revisits his famous choreography of Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring) and Symphonie de Psaumes (Symphony of Psalms). Created in 2000 in Amsterdam for the Equestrian Theatre Zingaro, these two choreographies enclosed Dialogue de l’Ombre Double (Dialogue of the Double Shadow), by Pierre Boulez, for Triptyk , a show performed all around the world, from Moscow to Los Angeles.
For this creation, the horseriders of Zingaro, the squires of the National Equestrian Academy of Versailles, and the dancers of the Danza Contemporánea de Cuba company, will seize the telluric choreography created by Bartabas. Dialogue of the Double Shadow will be replaced by Stravinsky’s Elegy, for viola (or violin) solo, a new piece especially created by Bartabas and played by Vladimir Percevic (viola and violin).See the shows
Designed by architect Patrick Bouchain, the theatre is a wooden construction. As soon as they enter the premises, audience members feel like they are already in the show.
Zingaro means “Gypsy”, evoking a journey around the cultures of the world. In order to meet his audience, Bartabas adapts in his big top the shows created in Aubervilliers’ theatre.
