Danses folles et sauvages is an electronic suite in five movements. It juxtaposes mechanical and unpredictable events, arbitrary and craziness, triviality and complexity in a confrontation from which even humor might spring !
It has been composed with the idea that it could be choreographed later, and this was done twice : by Sylvie Irlande in France (presented in 1981 at the Théâtre Rond-Point Liberté de St-Maur, with 5 dancers : Dominique Schmitt, Sylvie Irlande, Yolande Polmer, Christine Mouley et Laurence Salvadori), and by Maya Gingery in USA (presented in 1983 at the Mandeville Auditorium, University of California, San Diego, with 5 dancers : Victor Zupanc, Deane and Tom Rettig, Maya Gingery and Suzanne de Montigny).
