Fragments is the third work that came out of the "Les SlovaKs craftsman shop".
The premise of the piece is working with an existing music composition. SimonThierrée has written an original piece in four movements, performed by a string orchestra of 32 musicians, and Les SlovaKs decided to present another side of their background. They intertwined Thierrée's composition with the selection of songs from a renowned slovak popular singer, Melania Ollaryova.
The five creators choreographed while closely listening to the diverse musical proposition.
Working as a team during rehearsals, they rotated between the roles of performer and director. They crafted each separate musical part into a complete live movie scene, dance piece or theater act. Each movement referred to images,scenes and performers that had influenced or taught them.
Without any boundaries of style, they managed to construct different worlds that appear fully as soon as the scene unfolds. The show is entertaining, full of skilled dancing, expressive,humorous and touching. It sparkles with references that disappear as soon as the spectator tries to grab them.
Mat Voorter made perfectly fitting costumes, sewn with subtle imagination.
Les SlovaKs wish you a wonderful evening.
