Piano Works Debussy

Lisbeth Gruwez & Claire Chevallier, Voetvolk

Belgium

Lisbeth Gruwez is a jewel of contemporary dance. She follows her path, as free as ever, and for this new creation proposes to a great French pianist Claire Chevallier to explore together the genius of Claude Debussy. Claire Chevallier is at ease with the French contemporary music composers (such as Debussy, Ravel, Satie, Poulenc) as well as big modern choreographers/ directors (such as Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, Jan Lauwers,
Josse de Pauw). For nearly three years, Brest has been discovering the Belgian duet of Lisbeth Gruwez and Maarten Van Cauwenberghe with enthusiasm. After several rigorously controlled pieces (such as It’sgoing to get worse and worse and worse, My friend, AH/HA, We’re pretty fuckin’ far from okay), Lisbeth moves on towards feminine power and intuition (The Sea Within, Penelope) The collaboration between these two
women with character and nonconformist Claude Debussy expresses well this desire. Original and extremely powerful in their expressiveness, the collection of Debussy’s piano works blows a wind of freedom and opens up the way to all possible audacities.
