Sketches on Ligeti

‘We were strongly touched by the tight, intimate collaboration of live piano an body in motion. Not only is Cathy Krier’s rendering of Ligèty’s music an asset for the show to come, but her sheer physical, highly concentrated presence on stage adds to Elisabeth Schilling’s round and well considered, poetic, yet clear and readable dance moves. We consider the project to associate both talents to be a plain success.’

Steve Karier, artistic director Monodrama Festival Luxembourg

‚These first choreographic research results are promising. The harmony and interplay between Cathy Krier and Elisabeth Schilling is already at a very high level.’

Bernard Baumgarten, artistic director TROIS C-L, Centre de Création Chorégraphique Luxembourgeois

‚We had the pleasure to guest a two weeks residency of Ms. Shilling in our studio last June. I was really impressed by the concept of her «Mosaikgleiche Augenblicklichkeiten, Skizzen zu Ligeti» and the severe work that she did on the performing aspect of it. I specially appreciated the refined conceptual relation between the very complex and rigid piano score and the open, even though surprisingly precise, movement pattern. This is why we decided to present the Ligeti project in our next autumn programation.‘

‘She dives into this world of powerful sound in an incredibly sensitive way, powerful even in silence. (…) Fragile and stringent at the same time, her dance, between intuition and construction, is powerful, energetic and tender. Yet always somehow fragile. So clever and so touching.’
