In this new In Between, the Ensemble intercontemporain revisits the myth of Narcissus in the company of Aliénor Dauchez and Michael Kleine. Exceptionally beautiful, Narcissus repels all his suitors until the nymph Echo complains to the Gods. Angry, they make Narcissus fall in love with his own reflection. An unfulfilled passion, from which he ends up dying - although this does not keep him from looking for his reflection in the River Styx.

Deeply rooted in the very principle of music, the theme of the double and the echo is an inexhaustible source of inspiration. This is illustrated by the three works commissioned from French composers: Brice Pauset, Yves Chauris, and Yann Robin, whose creations, inspired by Oscar Wilde, Claude Debussy, or David Lynch, will be mirrored by Pierre Boulez' Dialogue de l'ombre double and Beat Furrer's Kaleidoscopic Memories.
