Third part of the three-year project POIESIS 2017/2019 (La morte e la fanciulla, Erectus)
After the projects created on Franz Schubert and Charles Mingus compositions, we conclude the Poiesis project with Arnold Schönberg. Also here the music leads the creative process.
We pursue the utopia of making "music" appear and the sound become visible. In the transposition, we'lltry to make a unity between choreography and drama structure as well as Schönberg did between music and drama in his opera.
Pelléas et Mélisande is a symbolist drama by Maurice Maeterlinck, written in 1892, which has as its subject a forbidden love followed by a tragic ending.
The work will be presented as work in progress after our first phase of creative process; it will be completed in the autumn 2019
