Michèle Bokanowski

Cirque has been performed in Crest and Paris…

Cirque (Circus) was not intentionally composed for dance, but was from the very beginning connected to the dancer and choreographer Bernardo Montet: in 1989, the RTVE (Spanish television) commissioned a video-dance from director Robert Cahen who asked Michèle Bokanowski to write the music; the result, Solo, was filmed in Paris in the Arènes de Lutèce, and was choreographed and danced by Bernardo Montet on the first musical sequences sketched on the theme of the circus. In October 1995, Bernardo Montet premiered a choreography for eight dancers on Cirque.

Cirque was produced in the studios of Kira BM Films and of Les Musiques de la Boulangère, both in Paris (France). The concert premiere was on May 23, 1994 in the Socar factory in Crest (France) during the first Futura festival. The recordings used in this music were produced between March 1988 and October 1993. The accordion was played by Jean-Louis Matinier.
