Life’s incessant motion

In rehearsal with Grand Miroir, the new creation from Saburō Teshigawara — By Octave

Invited to the Paris Opera for the third time, Japanese choreographer Saburō Teshigawara continues to explore the possible conjunctions between resonant texture, poetic image and the body’s organic rhythms. His new work, Grand Miroir is inspired by Charles Baudelaire’s poem “La musique” and interacts with Esa‑Pekka Salonen’s Violin Concerto, a brilliant and virtuoso score which manages to resonate with Teshigawara’s meditative and oneiric dance. Between two rehearsals, he opened the doors on his creation whereas dancer Lydie Vareilhes recounts what it was like to discover a body language where breathing and freedom reign supreme.
