MÉMOIRE DE L’OMBRE
Choreography produced by le Grand Ballet de Genève as a tribute to Gustav Mahler
Ken Ossola’s choice of Gustav Mahler’s hymn of love to life and the world for this performance seems obvious, given his dance’s propensity for the sacred and the way he places human beings in the eternal whirlwind of forces at play in the universe.
Ken Ossola invents movement to heighten and deepen his dancers’ awareness. He captures the secret magic of a body language that joins the innermost energy of individual being with a substance both divine and immaterial.
