Maud Blandel invites dancer Maya Masse and three soloists of Contrechamps from Geneva to develop an approach to composition based on the series Divertimenti by Mozart.
A new orchestration of Divertimento K.136 for a first-time quartet originates from this research: a guitar, a tuba, a piano and a dancing body.
What is revealed by such a transposition of entertainment? What is unveiled by a new organisation of the entertaining function?
Emphasizing what such a musical genre encapsulates in terms of expressiveness, Diverti Menti works towards the creation of a polyphony: a musical body, freed from narrative requirements, whose four voices devote themselves to a joint activity: defying speeds in order to thwart time.
