Samir Calixto | Cello8ctet Amsterdam, Korzo producties

“”

The iconic music of Arvo Pärt is a source of inspiration for many people because of its timeless and almost ethereal quality. The purity and freedom of his music touches on the longing for consolation and tranquility in times of confusion and unrest. The tranquility and silence in Pärt’s work are just as important as the musical notes. It is this ‘music of silence’ that brought together choreographer Samir Calixto and the Amsterdam Cello8ctet to create Summa. Pärt called the Cello8ctet ‘ein Goldstück’ and wrote compositions specially for them that now form the basis for Summa. With great concentration, eight ‘cellists and two dancers present a synthesis of the music and knowledge that is locked inside our bodies: a ‘summa’ of our human complexity. Music caresses space like a whisper, while the dance cuts through space like the wind.
