Angèle David-Guillou: “A Question of Angles”

by Rupert Bottenberg

The synchronicity sparkles between Angèle David-Guillou’s new compositions and Maurice Béjart’s classic choreographies.

To accompany the release of her new album A Question of Angles, composer Angèle David-Guillou has cobbled together a couple of videos for the album’s first two tracks. They’re both with borrowed footage from celebrated choreographer Maurice Béjart’s 1971 ballet Le Sacre du Printemps. The haunting title track, below, attends an entirely feminine passage from the ballet, while the fierce “Valley of Detachment” accompanies its masculine counterpart. The synchronicity sparkles between David-Guillou’s new music and Béjart’s classic choreographies.
