Revue macabre

After Noces/Quatuor, Aurélien Richard continued his research into what constitutes a composition based on archives, whether musical and/or choreographic. For his new piece, REVUE MACABRE, he summons the archetypal figure of the painful death, stylised and magnified by the artists, while combining it with the aesthetic of a popular form that has drawn in a great many creators: the 'review', a shape-shifting genre that flourished after the First World War in France and Germany, where very different artists were able to put forward their own material for consideration, song or dance. This piece is very much about addressing the theme of death on multiple levels, including burlesque, even if it causes the audience to laugh and feel uncomfortable at the same time. It is a work on vertigo, and the emptiness that follows laughter, that nothing that leaves human beings dazed when confronted with themselves

Richard, Aurélien

Pianist, composer and choreographer, Aurélien Richard performs as both a soloist and a chamber musician and plays with the Diotima quartet, the pianist Vanessa Wagner but also with ensembles like 2E2M or Les Siècles. At the same time, he collaborates on choreographic projects with William Forsythe, David Wampach, Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud, Mié Coquempot, Maud Le Pladec, Gaël Sesboüé and Alban Richard. He writes his own shows and performances, including “Hoketus”, a choreographic and musical work, created in 2009 at the Printemps de Septembre in Toulouse. He and Christine Caradec presented a training programme aimed at professionals, from 8 - 12 April 2013 at the CND (National Dramatic Centre): “Stratégies d'écriture et d'improvisation à partir du carcan postural des Noces de Bronislava Nijinska” (Strategies of writing and improvisation starting from the postural constraints of Bronislava Nijinska's Noces).
