Creation 3 and 4 September 1997, Festival Bellone Brigittines, Brussels
Michèle Noiret was 16 when she met the German composer, Karlheinz Stockhausen
. For the following 15 years she materialised the movement notation system created by the composer as a faithful reflection of his scores.
In Solo Stockhausen the two meet again in a new, reversed relationship. Today the choreographer approaches the composer's music with great freedom, perfect control and fascinating presence. Between polyphony and attention to every detail, she creates a dance piece that, while being carried by the music, finds its own space within it, its own breath, its specific existence.
In 2004, the film maker Thierry Knauff has created a cinematographical poem, Solo, freely inspired by the Solo Stockhausen. The company proposes a special evening with the performance and the projection of the film.
The performance is available with live musicians (Ensemble Itinéraire, Paris).
