Commissioned by the New York City Ballet, La Stravaganza staged its own story. From the beginning, it is about confronting a contemporary choreographer to ballet dancers, and Vivaldi to electronic and concrete music. This friction between two universes, a priori very different and which, however, manage to be symbiotic, is also found between sound and gesture. Harmony and disharmony of bodies.
