In search of the spaces between the notes in Debussy’s rebellious compositions

During the transition between the 19th and 20th centuries, French pianist Claude Debussy changed the face of classical music with his beautiful compositions. In ‘Piano Works Debussy’ choreographer Lisbeth Gruwez and pianist Claire Chevallier perform a physical duet set to the composer’s music. Together they go in search of the spaces between the notes in Debussy’s rebellious compositions.

For the first time in her career Gruwez is getting involved with classical music. After her formation in classical ballet she found freedom in contemporary dance, gradually developing a language of movement that's referential by now. In this respect, ‘Piano Works Debussy’ is a unique dialogue between a classical and contemporary framework that somehow uncovers her choreographical trajectory.

Lisbeth Gruwez is co-founder of the dance company Voetvolk and has performed on productions by Jan Fabre, Jan Lauwers and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. Chevalier is a much sought-after pianist for solo performances, chamber concerts and orchestral concerts.

“‘Piano Works Debussy’ is een aquarel. Denk aan de luchtigheid van kleuren die in elkaar vloeien, even opdrogen, en dan opnieuw bevochtigd worden om nieuwe verbindingen aan te gaan. De muziek van Debussy bevloeit de dans en schudt het materiaal telkens opnieuw door elkaar.” - Lisbeth Gruwez
