From the age of 6
Les Tombées de la Nuit is presenting 3 shows as part of Nos Futurs. This event, organised by Les Champs Libres in partnership with the newspaper Le Monde, gives a voice to young people by offering them a forum for discussion and reflection on a range of current issues.

In this vibrant version of Gustav Holst’s work featuring singing and dancing, ten performers take on the seven-movement symphonic poem (each movement corresponding to a planet in the solar system) to let us see and hear what resonates within us from the cosmos.

In his orchestral work composed between 1914 and 1917, Gustav Holst dedicated a musical tableau to each planet of the solar system, giving each its own colours, energy and themes (Mars the Bringer of War, Venus the Bringer of Peace, etc.)

This order, kept by the La Ville en Feu collective as the guiding thread of the vocal score, gives way here to an eighth planet, Earth, embodied by the song Hymn of the Travellers, also composed by Holst.

The versatile dancers and choreographers of La Ville en Feu (featured in Les Tombées de la Nuit last July, with Le Sacre) will perform a preview of this a cappella journey across the solar system in the foyer of Champs Libres, for an intimate, interstellar experience.
