Composed by John Cage in August 1948, the short five-movement Suite for Toy Piano is revisited with this choreography created in coincidence with the 100th anniversary of Cage’s birth. Together with the live music performance, this work proposes an intimate situation in dialogue between the body and the poetry of space.
