In 2001, The choreographer Angelin Preljocaj encountered a prototype of contemporary music signed by Karlheinz Stockhausen. Helikopter is a work with metallic accents that swallows up the dancers on the ground as the sond of the string quartet recorded in flying helicopters is projected on the stage. This performance of Helikopter is followed by a new creation Angelin Preljocaj set to the electronics by Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Still Life, represents allegories of death, of the passage of time, of passions that fade: a precise choreographic writing and an ongoing reflection on these ancestral symbols.
