Meyoucycle sounds like ‘musical’ pronounced in a strange accent. Along with composer Chris Peck and four Ictus musicians, Bauer blends together all the ingredients for a musical, producing a completely new, hybrid genre. The piece is about you and me and everything in between. That’s right, a me-you cycle.

Each Liquid Room is a mini festival at various locations where music seeks points of convergence with other disciplines. Liquid Room VIII explores a simple hypothesis: music is not just sound!

Starting with rituals and celebrations – from the archaic to the contemporary – Gisèle Vienne brings a group of 15 youngsters together who dance to a DJ set by Peter Rehberg. Contrary to the discourse that labels all violence as barbaric, she looks for manifestations of violence that do play a valuable, positive role in society.

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.
