Dawnlight/Night: Light


Premiere 2015

Night: Light, initially created for the Espace de projection at IRCAM, layers the musical score of Raphaël Cendo, the lighting score of Valérie Sigward, and the choreographic score of Alban Richard. Today, Jérôme Combier and Alban Richard have added a shared score, created from the breathing of a dancer and the birth of voice, just before speaking, a sort of far off echo of Katadjak throat singing practiced by Inuit women. From the eruptive musical gesture by Raphaël Cendo to the art of the obvious by Jérôme Combier, Nuit et jour covers the antipodes of musical and corporal expression.
