›Flowers (we are)‹, Claire Croizé’s first collaboration with composer Matteo Fargion, is a piece for three dancers and two musicians that combines the writings of Rainer Maria Rilke with the baroque tones of Johann Sebastian Bach.
Drawing on a number of well-known preludes, expanded with synths and sound effects, and chorales, rearranged for four-hands piano, as well as new compositions, ›Flowers (we are)‹, tells of imaginative, poetic worlds, the tentative love between two people, the overpowering relation between a parent and their child, the intimacy and generosity shared by performers on stage and the (im)possibility of forming a connection with each other - all set against the magnificently unlikely background of pop music with lyrics by Rilke.
