Choreographer Isabella Soupart and the MP4 Quartet take on three masterpieces by Steve Reich: Pendulum Music, Different Trains - 1989 Best Contemporary Composition Grammy Award - and WTC 9/11, bringing forth intimate reflections within worldwide historical drama.
In Different Trains, through immersive soundscape and fragmented testimonies, Reich evokes his Jewish American childhood during World War II, while he would have travelled on other trains, had he lived in Europe in the same period. The same composition processes are used in WTC 9/11, a piece written to commemorate the September 11 attacks.
The Steve Reich Project is a pulsating confrontation of dance, music and video art, a raw, deeply moving statement on the frailty of the human condition.
