WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART
Requiem (original fragments)
Do you think you know Mozart’s Requiem by heart? Error ! Forget the versions completed by his student Süssmayr or others, place the unfinished work as written by Mozart before dying prematurely. The reading of the Requiem fragments by the circus artist Yoann Bourgeois explores the silences of the unfinished score. On the set, eight acrobatic dancers echo the void left by the death of Mozart, between suspension and disappearance.
