Work 2021
Solo piece

PREMIERES • 30th June, 1rst and 2nd July 2021 • Montpellier Danse Festival (FR)


Jann Gallois’ intention is to bring together on stage different forms of sacred art through music and dance, with the aim of revealing our immortal essence, which cannot be described with words. Trained as a musician since her childhood, Jann won’t only dance in this piece but will be also performing music live. While developing original movements inspired by different music styles from the classical so-called “sacred” repertory to traditional music around the world, the choreographer shows us that it is also possible to detect divin relationship into surprising registers such as Wadaiko (traditional Japanese percussion) or electronic music. Although their forms may differ, the substance and power of those musics are not far removed from Jann Gallois’ view, since they reflect one and the same thing : our soul.
