Program note
Danses et interludes are linked in a non linear sequence of 6 dances and 3 interludes. The piece is inspired by Balkan traditional dances and other imaginary dances. The rhythms come from the Serbian language. I recall watching women dancing silently (without music) and hearing the sound of their necklaces of numerous minuscule metal plates. Download program note.
