Yuval Pick, who heads the National Choreography Centre of Rillieux-laPape, has long approached his output as an exploration of the ties between dance and music. Vocabulary of need deepens this continuum, drawing on Johann Sebastian Bach’s Partita No.2 in D minor (BWV 1004) for solo violin.

Centred on one of Bach’s most inspired scores, this new choreographic piece for four male and four female dancers creates a link between the violin strings and the dancers’ bodies. Through their movements, they create vibrations in the space, with strokes of energy and élan that build a sense of urgency. The body language is complex and precise, to be read like an intimate calligraphy. A “fleeting embrace, between dance and music”, where eight beings seek and find each other, in infinite counterpoints.

Le désir d'atteindre quelque chose de plus grand se cristallise dans cette étreinte fugace entre danse et musique.
