Last October, during the new concert series Incógnito I presented my collaborative piece Dans les noirceurs – Three stages of black. This piece is a collaboration with the visual artist Elia Navarro and the poet Georgi Gill. I really enjoyed working with both of them and soon we will have new versions of the piece: orchestral and installation.
All the elements of the piece reflect three different perceptions of the colour black: the darkness, a black object and the shadow. The layout of the performers on the stage (and off stage) represents the idea of a single element (mezzo soprano) that goes through the previously mentioned stages of black. The components of the piece and the different techniques used reproduce a transition from an unseen object hidden in the dark, the exhibition of the black object and finally, the projection of its shadow.
