Extra large dance concert

The concert of Steve Reich's pulsating hypnotic work involves 100 dance enthusiasts from Mulhouse, Fribourg and Basel. French choreographer Sylvain Groud invites people from the region to come and dance to the minimalist classic. In pre-show workshops, they will discover the power and potential of bodies, movements and gazes. During three performances in Basel, Mulhouse and Fribourg, the tri-national group will become the link between the musicians and the audience, thereby ensuring a collective musical experience. Together they occupy the theatre space – until no one knows who is initiated and who has let themselves be carried away by the music.

In cooperation with La Filature, Mulhouse and Theater Freiburg
