GM Ballet will be setting up its summer quarters in the covered market facing Lake Geneva in Montreux from 13 to 23 August 2015.
The audience will discover the work based on an original idea by Giorgio Mancini, director and choreographer of GM Ballet, in partnership with the Fondation MAG - Montreux Art Gallery. For the audience, the secrets of choreographic creation, the work of the dancers and the precision required to ensure a perfect performance will be unveiled.
Each day the public will be invited to observe, admire and share the artistic passion and bodily expression under the choreographer’s direction, all set to the rhythm of Bach’s music.
This year, Giorgio Mancini will be working with his five dancers on Johann Sebastian Bach’s famous Air sur la corde de Sol, performed live by the pianist Magdalena Hirsz and by the violonist Elizaveta Martynova. Mancini has already performed the work in the courtyard of the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence and in the gardens of the Villa Vauban in Luxembourg, and now amateurs and professionals from the public will be able to discover each day in a spontaneous and informal fashion what the process of choreographic creation entails and some of the difficulties is poses.
To round off the ten days of performing, Giorgio Mancini will present to the public in the evening of the grand closing ceremony the entire new work called " A R I A ". This will also be the occasion to discover or rediscover « A nima », which was choreographed in 2012 in the gardens of the Villa Vauban in Luxembourg and in the courtyard of the Palazzo Strozzi under similar conditions.
