TRANSCRIPTION OF COLOR
JUANJO ARQUÉS & BALLET MOSCOW


From the analysis of the colors and the shapes in ‘Construction A II’ - a painting by the Bauhaus artist Laszlo Moholy-Nagy - a libretto is written for a full length ballet: Transcription of Color.

Color has a neural response; it has a biochemical reaction and a psychological phenomenon. Color affects us by resonating in our memory, instinct, body and all the five senses.
This ballet will take the viewer into an open color journey, triggering the eye and mind of the spectator emotionally. Choreographed to John Adams’ Harmonielehre, the ballet calls for dreamlike details and movements full of suspense and drama, without depicting a one directional story line.

Choreography: Juanjo Arqués
Dramaturgy&Libretto: Fabienne Vegt
Costume Design: Oliver Haller
Music: Harmonielehre by John Adams
Choreographic assistence: José Carlos Blanco Martinez
