A peculiar dance party with a duet of viola da gamba and electric guitar for ages 6+ .
"Dance along to music from the time of the Sun King"
Zonzo Compagnie and Ictus dust off a masterpiece by Marin Marais, the court composer of Louis XIV, the Sun King. That is the starting point of a performance in which the audience are invited to dance. Sometimes the audience move to the sound of the music, othertimes the choreography seems to take on a life of its own and it is up to the musicians to follow. The music thus gives birth to a curious choreography: something between yoga, Baroque courtly dance and aerobics.
'Le Grand Ballet' is a wordless music production to which the audience is invited to dance. Sometimes they move on the sound of the music, and other times the musicians just have to follow the dance of the audience.
