L’Ailleurs de l’autre

An enigmatic ritual of foreign chants, masks and costumes takes place on 6 October at the Orangerie in a brilliant parade.

Five women who seem to come from the future discover recordings of the human voice from a long-distant past in a kind of space probe. They are shamanic voices, lullabies and shepherd’s songs, songs from Ethiopia, Albania, Burma and India, the Solomon Islands, Switzerland, Taiwan and other countries.
The sometimes acrobatically virtuosic songs, the ornate costumes and the speed with which the world of songs is traversed all add to the magic of L’Ailleurs de l’autre (The Elsewhere of the Other). The physicality of the performers changes with every sound, every breath or aspiration. This is extended through the masks and costumes, which render the musical forms visually.
For their music-theatre L’Ailleurs de l’autre, Aliénor Dauchez, the French director, visual artist and leader of the company La Cage, spent many years in the archive of the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris with the singers of the vocal ensemble Les Cris de Paris. Together they shifted through music-ethnological documents and orally transmitted songs, which were then learned by the classically trained singers. The songs are framed in an original composition by Hanna Eimermacher.
