„La Dernière Sarabande -ou l’obsolescence programmée-“ is a unique Trilogy project around Bach’s work connected to the global warming challenge in order to highlight different cities like Leipzig, Venice or Karlstad. Juliette Rahon & Co researches a way to create new variations of Bach’s full sixth Cello Suite, by combining several instruments together. At the same time Juliette Rahon & Co analyzes, researches and questions the matter of the global warming, a collective global challenge. The goal of this project is to question ourselves, to research and analyze what can we do or undo, and is not focused on lecturing the audience.
The cellist and painter Léonard Frey-Maibach and the performer Juliette Rahon started in 2019 to work on the first part of the trilogy .
Firstly, Juliette Rahon will depict an underwater world, and will transform the dancers and musicians into aquatic creatures. The choreographer aims to research how animals react in front of the consequences of pollution in our oceans, and are therefore victims of human behavior. Next, Rahon intends to reflect on Global Warming as a direct impact on human life. Temperatures rise and more water flows to the seas from glaciers and ice caps, causing ocean waters to warm and expand in volume. This combination of effects is raising the average of the sea level and in seventy years city like Amsterdam or Venice could disappear.
