Bringing up onstage the chamber orchestra Le Balcon, two singers and five dancers, Tatiana Julien creates the live version of Initio, a vibrant choreographic opera.
 

With a simple, pared-down expressionistic dance, the young artist delves into the cracks and interstices. By writing between the lines, she tackles emptiness, the afterlife and the sacred. With composer Pedro Garcia-Velasquez and writer Alexandre Salcède, she has worked on a three-fold project, creating this hybrid opera in which voice and music follow choreographic guidelines. This is a community looking for a place to live out its rituals. From darkness to light, up to the foundational sacrifice.  Led by a hermit meeting a sibyl – the riveting countertenor Rodrigo Ferreira and soprano Léa Trommenschlager - the group takes us into symbolic landscapes. In turn tumultuous and calm, movements circle and spiral from the individual out to the collective. Vibrating bodies affected by emptiness and vertigo, introduce us to a ritual. INITIO [Live] is  a delicate journey to the heart of the sacred, on stage, within ourselves, and in the world.
