Requiem pour L

Théâtre National Wallonie-Bruxelles

Fourteen worldwide musicians and a stage device that brings out the corporeal equilibrium of the dancers; Alain Platel and Fabrizio Cassol reconstruct Mozart’s unfinished work. Cross-pollinated, shot through with jazz, African popular music and chants, their creation is enriched with complexity by these varieties of sound. In a set depicting monoliths inspired by the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, the musicians, joyful, almost possessed, celebrate the breath of life which accompanies the images of that woman whom we see slowly glide to the opposite shore.

Alain Platel and Fabrizio Cassol are back together after Coup fatal which was celebrated for its fresh reinterpretation of the Baroque canon. With Requiem for L, a modern and universal mass, they confront the possibilities, ask the final question and invent new rites of passage.
