collectif9 - RITUÆLS in concert
Chamber music ensemble collectif9 presents the premiere performances of their critically acclaimed production RITUÆLS in Montreal on two nights, on Friday, November 18 and Saturday, November 19 at 7:30pm. RITUÆLS brings together works dating from the Middle Ages to the 21st century with music by Hildegard von Bingen, Arvo Pärt, Michael Tippett, Nicole Lizée, Bryce Dessner, and Jocelyn Morlock, and features a gripping performance by Stacey Désilier (choreography and dance).
The show itself is presented as a grand artistic ceremony during which the musicians occupy several spaces throughout the Church of Saint-Pierre-Apôtre in a way that echoes the grandeur and depth of the pieces on the program. The lighting, scenography, and staging contribute to the creation of a succession of moments that transport us and invite contemplation.
With the participation of Laurence Jobidon, organ.
Lighting by Renaud Pettigrew.
Set design by Joëlle Harbec.
Live video by Lucas Harrison Rupnik.
Duration: 1 hour, without intermission
