On stage, it’s about living a moment and not playing it, that’s the difference between a performer, even a virtuoso, and a musician. It is the difference between thinking of the stage as a space of representation, or the stage as a space for encounters. Meetings between musicians or artists of all disciplines, but also encounters with the (the) public.
As an interpreter it is always possible to “hide” behind our know-how, our virtuosity… Here, whether with the LWS or the use of SHC, know-how and virtuosity are transformed into listening, presence, conviction, incarnation, precisely because there is no technique, tradition, school, or method. These are to be invented, to be re-invented constantly, as every time we play or replay a work. Rethinking our relationship to the body, to movement, to carry and to be carried by the sound we produce, to surprise ourselves with this renewed listening.

How will children take ownership of the LWS ?
That was the question because from the beginning, it was a question of children being composers and performers of their own pieces!
