Mass b is "a great human fresco, both Baroque and contemporary, based on the journeys of those who have fled their homeland in the hope of rebuilding their lives in a new place," in the words of creator Béatrice Massin, a specialist in Baroque dance.
Just as Bach’s monumental Mass in B Minor coexists here alongside three works by progressive 20th-century composer György Ligeti (one for organ, one for harpsichord, and another for 100 metronomes!), Mass b represents a meeting point between the ancient and the modern, delivering a compelling statement about continuity and contemporaneity. Massin's elegant, colorful choreography smartly deploys geometric patterns and Baroque conventions with codes of contemporary dance: a liberatory, inspiring, and singular work, not to be missed!
