For the past several years, Sixtrum has been working with director Michel G. Barette in the creation of many of their concerts. This is the case for their upcoming concert, Histoires de gestes, to be presented at the Society for Arts and Technology (SAT) on Monday, November 7th. If working with a director is a common practice in many arts such as dance, circus and, of course, theatre, this form of collaboration is much more unusual in the world of contemporary music. To better understand the role of a stage director in a project such as Histoires de gestes, I spoke with Michael G. Barette. whom I thank for the time he gave to me.
