Two continents, five artists, “Tissages et métissages” is a show which links old and new world, Brazil and Europe, with the ensemble Alma Brasileira: around Caroline Magalhães‘s voice (she is the fruit of both cultures), Cécilia Bouchet-Ferrier‘s cello and Anne-Catherine Kaiser‘s piano. The interpretation of Brazilian and European music of the 20‘s is complemented by scenic performances by Didier Beauvalet and by screen projections by Jean-David Delépine.
He intervenes on two screens: one is the memory screen where are displayed records images, that evoke the composers and their worlds. The second one takes us to a timeless world of travel and dream, through videos and photos that he has made and that he choses according to music. A dose of improvisation is added when he shoots in live some images of the show, that are displayed and shooted again on the screen, which creates a mise en abyme of images that become dreamlike, unreal, mysterious.
This show has been performed in 2012 at Saessoelsheim and at Francfort, and was enthusiastically welcomed by the public.
