François de Fossa, who was a contemporary of Haydn, has composed his quartett «Opus 19, Nr. 3» for the rather unusual cast of one violine, one cello and two guitars. This music, which seems to be closer to the classical ballet than the contemporary dance, stood at the beginning of «One day after another». Its three parts – Lento, Allegro, Lento – influence form and rhythm of the choreography. The apparent duo is an accompanied solo in double ways: The female dancer Nurya Egger is accompanied not only by the music but also by the second dancer Hideto Heshiki. Similar to a bright shadow or a guardian angel he is always close to her, without transgressing any boundary. He accompanies her paths and follows her gestures. This danced chamber music, which is tender, cheerful and quiet, touches because of his simplicity and intimacy.
