Play and Play: An Evening of Movement and Music @ Festival de Marseille, Marseille, France
Performed with live musicians, Play and Play: An evening of movement and music applies Jones’s inventive choreography to some of the most important Western musical works of our time. Featuring compositions by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Ravel this program highlights the joy of musicians and dancers working together. Repertory includes D-Man in the Waters (1989), Bill T. Jones's joyful tour de force and a genuine modern dance classic, Ravel: Landscape or Portrait (2012), a new work that reflects the wistful and melancholic sentiment of Ravel's String Quartet in F Major as well as its precision and restraint and the classical Continuous Replay (1977, revised 1991), performed with a new score composed by Jerome Begin. Every performance features live music.
