Presentation Programmation & distribution Video

The cycle of Regnums by Mauro Lanza (1975) and Andrea Valle concludes with the world premiere of Regnum lapideum, the mineral kingdom, the last category of the trinity of Nature according to the classification of the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778). Three kingdoms in Nature: two living, one inorganic.

Facing this static world, the German Martin Grütter (1983) and the Frenchman Frédéric Verrières (1968) introduce movement. The former dynamites the tradition of dance music and its truisms by pulling it towards St Vitus's dance, a pathological de-synchronisation of the human body. The latter stages La Valse, a danced black whirl of the imperial court, in an in situ rewriting of the Ravelian universe.
