»(…) Chorus is a masterpiece for the eyes and ears. This is a sensitive show that fulfils our cosmic appetite and makes up for our lack of beauty (…)« 


»(…) as refreshing as a breeze and enchanting as a dream« 


Encounters are a recurring theme in French choreographer Mickaël Phelippeau’s work. In ›Chorus‹ he meets up with the 24 strong A Cappella Choir ›Voix Humaines‹, all accomplished music lovers whom he invites to make dance out of song. Focusing on a multi-faceted interpretation of Bach’s Choral BWV 384 ›Nicht so traurig, nicht so sehr‹, singing silently, backwards, slightly out-of-tune, appearing, disappearing or beating time, the singers shift ingeniously from variation to variation, scene to scene, wonderfully bringing to mind metaphors of our visual heritage.
