Something between dance, music and theater, More Mouvements für Lachenmann is French choreographer Xavier Le Roy’s poetic and fascinating version of a contemporary music concert from the point of view of someone obsessed with movement. This dance for eight extraordinary virtuoso musicians, including members of the Austrian new music ensemble Klangforum Wien, breaks down the work of making music by uncoupling sounds and movements, sonic events and silences, actions and stillness. More Mouvements includes the Lachenmann works “Pression,” “Salut für Caudwell,” and “Gran Torso.”
