A coproduction Violet - Web Flash Festival, created at the Centre Georges Pompidou on May 27th 2006 after an original idea by Guylaine Monnier
Choreography and music by Antoine Schmitt and Jean-Jacques Birgé
100 Nabaztag smart rabbits, brought by their owners, did meet at Centre Pompidou, in the same spirit of the flashmobs, to all play together an opera specially composed by Antoine Schmitt et Jean-Jacques Birgé. Inviting John Cage, Steve Reich, Conlon Nancarrow and György Ligeti, this musical and choreographic partition in three movements, transmitted via wi-fi, plays on the tension between the music ensemble communion and individual behavior to create a strong and involved showpiece. Computer indiscipline is the subject of this opera, a desire to be together and the difficulty to do it.
