Requiem / Yoann Bourgeois
FESTIVAL MOZART MAXIMUM
So you thought you knew Mozart’s Requiem by heart? Wrong! Forget the versions completed by his pupil Süssmayr or others. This is the unfinished work written by Mozart before his untimely death. The interpretation of fragments of the Requiem by circus artist Yoann Bourgeois explores the silences that are part of the unfinished score. On stage, between suspension and disappearance, eight acrobatic dancers give voice to the void left by Mozart’s death.
