PARADE / PROMENADE
PARADE/PROMENADE consists of different tableaux vivants. These scenes are presented in different episodes. PARADE/PROMENADE is inspired by Mussorgski’s dance ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ from 1874 in which different paintings are imagined.
The tableaux made by buren, show a future image thought from another time and space. A science fiction about the feasilbility of the human, songs about an invisible place, an unknown tribe. The setting is an absolute universe, out of the imagination. Another influence is Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in 1916-1917.
