Description

%0A New Work (2020) is an ambitious new production from critically acclaimed British choreographer Michael Clark. Hailed as "British dance's true iconoclast", Clark is a defining artistic figure. From his emergence as a prodigy at London's Royal Ballet School in the 1980s, he has remained at the forefront of innovation in dance. Since his first appearance on the Grand Théâtre stage with the evocative Mmm... in 2008, audiences have been able to follow his work with come, been and gone in 2010, E.P. The De Luxe Edition in 2013 and to a simple, rock 'n' roll . . . song. in 2017.%0A%0A2020 will see Michael Clark Company embark on what could be seen as the third part in a trilogy of works choreographed to the music of key figures in Clark's life: Igor Stravinsky (2005), David Bowie (2009), and now Joni Mitchell.%0A%0AAs Michael's mother lay dying in a care home in Fraserburgh, Scotland, she said: "Put on some music for me, Mike". Music had been a constant source of strength in their lives, onstage and off, and now in death. Michael reached for his phone and played the last thing he had been listening to: For Free by Joni Mitchell.%0A%0AThis new work will begin life focussing on two of Mitchell's mid-70s LPs ? Hejira (1976) and The Hissing of Summer Lawns (1975) ? and will be performed by a company of nine talented dancers, fluent in Clark's technique. Long-term collaborators Charles Atlas and Stevie Stewart will once again join the creative team for this new work.%0A%0AFor this production, a world premiere at the Grand Théâtre, Michael Clark and his dancers will establish their headquarters in Luxembourg for an "end of rehearsal" residency. In the days leading up to the premiere, they will offer an immersion into Clark's aesthetics and choreographic language through a programme of meetings, masterclasses and exchanges with the audience.%0A%0A
