  • A choreographic concert that celebrates and deconstructs the myth of the rock star, through cycles of glory and decline. An intergenerational cast of six dancers and three musicians explore the recent works and life of the pop icon to distill a universal essence: an embodied, poetic and frenzied reflection on aging and the mythologizing of the artist. The dance is powerful, the music enveloping; the performers move with their always sharp presence. They come together as a strange yet endearing pack, all while affirming their individuality. The spectral presence of the aging rock scan be sensed in their gestures, words, songs and presence. In a breathtaking requiem delivered without concessions, we are faced with a more intimate, vulnerable portrait of the legendary godfather of punk. REQUIEM POP is the final and most spectacular chapter of a trilogy of works inspired by the "godfather" of punk rock Iggy Pop.
