Press on ‘Sketches with Ligeti’ – Performance in Luxembourg

Last June Cathy Krier and Elisabeth Schilling appeared together on stage for the first time to premiere the research piece ‘Mosaikgleiche Augenblicklichkeiten – Skizzen zu Ligeti’ at the MonoLabo Festival in Luxembourg.

Here is the article in the Newspaper of the Letzebuerger Vollek:

‘Let’s go into the lair and into the of vivid of the evening. The first performance was of very great beauty: “Mosaikgleiche Augenblicklichkeiten, Skizzen zu Ligeti”. This creation by Elisabeth Schilling (choreographer) and Cathy Krier (pianist), requires a lot of body control and powerful piano skills. Cathy Krier, whose international reputation is well known, played the piano studies of the Hungarian composer György Ligeti magnificently. Music and visuel poetry go hand in hand. Elisabeth Schilling is perfect, her body leaves, her body travels, her body is both space and sublimation. The dancer’s movements are jerky, sometimes violent, the two artists join a state of mind similar to trance. Cathy’s fingers crystallize the music, offering her that vertigo that the interpretation needs. Sometimes her fingers are like automatons, then, in the following second, they take on the grace of a swan. Elizabeth is silent, while her whole body unveils mysteries associated with Ligeti’s music.’
