Franz Schubert’s Symphony n.8, famously known as the ‘Unfinished Symphony’, provides the inspiration to Le Pladec for Twenty-seven perspectives.
Pete Harden, composer and director of the KLANG ensemble, presents an original version of Schubert’s work, crafting a series of reinterpreted, distorted fragments to complete the score.
Le Pladec creates her own choreographic response to the revised symphony, entrusting the cast with scaled-down and mathematical movement.
The production is structured in three distinct parts, with ten performers of varied dance backgrounds hailing from Japan, Belgium, Portugal and France. They perform on a white floor representing the blank canvas where they build on Schubert’s work.
