Mantra by Karlheinz Stockhausen is one of the most renowned cult works of 20th-century classical music. The work is an expanding sound universe, a cosmic dance to a primordial melody. Yet Mantra is also a ritual in sound, an hour-long meditation on the mystical relationship between unity and multitude, uniformity and variation. Analysing all tempi, timbres and dynamics is pointless – the composition revolves entirely around intuition and experience. Andreas Grau and Götz Schumacher are perfectly placed to interpret Mantra. The musical soulmates have had over 20 years’ practice of the work. The GrauSchumacher duo are therefore considered the absolute specialists in performing this hypnotic masterpiece.

What would happen if we were to abandon verticality after centuries of walking upright? This question is the starting point of Laurent Chétouane’s new creation. Two male and one female dancer search for new equilibriums in a disjointed setting. A violinist accompanies them live onstage with Bach’s Partita for Violin no. 1 in B-minor.

For this ambitious group choreography, Daniel Linehan is delving into Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps. He has opted to stage the beautiful version for two pianos, which will be performed live by Jean-Luc Plouvier (from Ictus) and Alain Franco. You will be seated near the thirteen dancers and the pianists – a proximity that results in a collective shared energy.
