Two legends meet again: stage director Robert Wilson and choreographer Lucinda Childs reinvent Relative Calm. A fascinating work that is even bigger and more exuberant over forty years after its first creation.

In 1976, the opera Einstein on the Beach kickstarted one of the most fruitful collaborations of the 20th century. Lucinda Childs starred as a narrator and dancer while Robert Wilson pulled the strings of a hypnotic staging. Five years later, the two icons of the new American scene created Relative Calm together, a ballet set to the music of Jon Gibson.

Today it is not a revival as much as it is a reactivation of the memory of this work that the two flamboyant artists, now in their 80s, offer to our audience. Repetition and variation are still its driving force, but not only the lights, the sets and the structure are all new. Hence, in this three-act ballet, the music of Jon Gibson is a prologue and the music by Jon Adams is the contrasting epilogue, while the Igor Stravinsky’s Pulcinella is the core of the new work.  The famous piece commissioned for Les Ballets Russes – premièred in 1920 with the set and costumes by Pablo Picasso – Is now staged by Robert Wilson and Lucinda Childs with the performers of the company MP3 Dance Project. Between each act, a performer, Aleksander Asparuhov, will initiate a dialog with the voices of Robert Wilson and Lucinda Childs over Nijinsky, legendary dancer, following extracts from his diary. (De)synchronization, repetitive motifs, fine-tuned movements and video creation intertwine and all bear the signature of two legends.
