An Evening with Raimund

An Evening with Raimund

Aiming at leaving the balcony open, like Raimund Hoghe invited us to with the title of the piece Si je meurs, laissez le balcon ouvert (2010) [If I Die, Leave the Balcony Open], his dancers got together to pay him a first tribute. In an ephemeral performance, danced fragments chosen from his repertoire will revive the wave of humanity and poetry that Raimund Hoghe was able to delicately place on each of us, dancers and spectators.

“Don’t cry, there’ll be another spring
I know our hearts will dance again
And sing again, so wait for me till then…”
— Peggy Lee, in the piece Young People, Old Voices (2002)
