Another creation, Requiem Mozart is a meeting between a powerful, emotionally-charged work, and eight dancers choreographed by Yoann Bourgeois, a dancer and circus performer. In this dizzying performance, the dancers’ bodies fall, disappear and reappear, while the music of Mozart is played by soloists, the choir Accentus and the Insula Orchestra, conducted by Laurence Equilbey. On the 10th and 11th of June.
