Piano Works Debussy is a physical duet between choreographer Lisbeth Gruwez and pianist Claire Chevallier. Together they explore the spaces between the notes in Claude Debussy’s compositions, which challenged and rebelled against the structural rigidity of other composers.
Their movements are suggestions rather than expressions, in line with Debussy’s search for ‘la musique immatérielle’. Rather than evoking a rigid reality, Gruwez and Chevallier let the imagination run its free course.
For the first time in her career Gruwez is getting involved with classical music. After her formation in classical ballet she found freedom in contemporary dance, gradually developing a language of movement that's referential by now. In this respect, Piano Works Debussy is a unique dialogue between a classical and contemporary framework that somehow uncovers her choreographical trajectory.
Lisbeth Gruwez: "Piano Works Debussy is an aquarelle. Think about the airiness of colours that flow in one another, dry for a while, and become moistened again to establish new connections. Debussy's music irrigates the dance and continually shakes up the material."
Piano Works Debussy is premiering in March 2020.
