Préludes

Helge Letonja

During intimate rehearsals, choreographer Helge Letonja together with the ensemble Of Curious Nature have created dances to Frédéric Chopin’s 24 Préludes. The compositions, considered masterpieces of Chopin, become a crystallization point to reflect and reexamine the poetry of pure dance. In solos and duets, Helge Letonja condenses the various emotional facets and dynamic qualities of music into expressive contemporary dancing. The artistic range of the protagonists from this new Northern German ensemble unfold on the basis of the clearly defined musical motifs of the Préludes: sometimes in reference to them, sometimes as counterpoint. The palette ranges from melancholic thoughtfulness, through dense passages of breathlessness drawn into time, to stormy, dynamic cascades. These allow the dancers to create a sensual arc full of movement details and personalized dance vocabulary.
