"Vanessa Wagner had an idea. Labelle responded to it.
Vanessa narrates a sensitive orchestral work, expressed through Labelle’s electro-acoustic and maloya sound.
They come together in a shared expression: nature and our relationship to her.
An attempt to get closer.
To watch it...to feel it.
Nature is not merely a materialistic source of worry about the future, but the living pervasiveness of the present moment.
A raw space filled with energy and things.
Stopping at her doors, Is looking into infinity, into deep space, into a form of reality where consciousness and speech dissipate.
Uniting body and spirit in an exquisite moment. Accepting death.
Reunion, land of the lavish, lush and lively.
France, loaded, age-old soil.
Ancestralism, spirituality, nature, animism, ritual.
From intimate to grandiose, from a suspended solo to a head-to-head orchestral dialogue, with the piano at the centre, telling the story.
The electronics will play with the space and with the relationship between sounds and pitch, exploring a progressive increase from something entirely acoustic to something entirely...transformed.
Traditional percussion from Réunion will keep the pulse."
