Rhapsody is a ballet that fascinates by the way Oscar Araiz distributes movement.

We remember his Adagietto which hypnotised the spectator with its slow motion. Here, the choreographer follows a more accidental pattern. The ballet resembles a game of marbles where the spheres, carried away by the notes of Rachmaninov, roll slowly on the floor and then collide in a chaotic display. Rhapsody is a roll of the dice. If one manages to perceive the initial movement that triggers the choreographic sequence, the rest is a game of chance. For the choreographer: "Rhapsody is a game of energies, such as can be felt around a gambling table, or in the relationships of the different timbres of an orchestra. There is always a coordinator of these energies: a croupier, a conductor, but the external factor, fortune, chance, also has its role to play. As soon as the curtain rises, the dancers are lined up in front of a central figure who assigns each one a movement as if he were dealing cards. Then the performers follow their destinies and the choreography is born before our eyes as circles and diagonals form, only to fall apart again. Rhapsody plays subtly with chance and gives the unsettling impression that movement is neither completely random nor completely circumscribed.
