RECITACIONES – RECITATIONS

“Recitations” is the result of the intervention of the musical concert for solo voice “Récitations”, composed by Georges Aperghis in 1978.

This work operates on the original space where a musical concert takes place, to transform it in the place where the alterations of different emotional states are shown.

Commissioned by TACEC (Teatro Argentino de La Plata, centro de Experimentación y Creación).

It opened in September 2010, with the participation of the Dance Company of IUNA and the performance of the French soprano Donatienne Michel-Dansac.

It won the 1st Prize of the Choreographic Contest Tanz im August-IUNA 2011.

In 2013, the work was awarded a grant by the Metropolitan Fund for the Arts and Sciences of the Government of the city of Buenos Aires for its revival with an independent cast and production.
