Dance Novel

Asleep, perhaps she has slept-in in the cold armour of the morning …
A dance novel on the life of four women. The performance with the martial arts feeling builds on the atmosphere which reminds of Nó Japanese theatre.
Faces appear as masks. The dancers look for the true gesture. Lightning-fast movement is followed by sculpture-like inertia. It is a night in wartime. A night which will teach you much before the new day comes.

Pierre Nadaud has succeeded in creating a mysterious, even slightly frightening and ominous atmosphere. This is hugely supported by the music, which at times discreetly shapes the mood of the situation, and most importantly by the lighting design which unveils only as much as is necessary to match the timing of the movement. The dancers have shown great potential; a work like this requires an unimaginable degree of inner concentration.
A Different Morning may induce tension which won’t let you loose.
