Basso Continuum
Gil Roman

Basso Continuum takes on an intimate form for the eight dancers, drawing on different musical inspirations ranging from baroque to jazz, funk, disco, romantic and contemporary music. The piece, choreographed by Gil Roman, seeks its own echoes in the charming chiaroscuro style and explores the dreamlike dimension of shadows, like a poetry of contrast where the double bass – the quintessential baroque “basso continuo” instrument – symbolizes continuity through the musical styles of which it is the common denominator.
