Music by Accordéon Mélancolique used in Julliard production
The third-year class of The Juilliard School, New York, performs a new work by Johannes Wieland, Artistic Director of the resident dance company at the State Theatre of Kassel, Germany. The work is set to a series of folk songs, mostly by J.P. Guiran (Cafe Vert, Mango, Te Lang Alleen and l'Heure bleue), to be performed live by accordionists Michael Ippolito and Bob Goldberg.

Review in Oberon's Grove.
In Johannes Wieland's -Because there isn't any- the dancers seemed to spend quite a bit of time on the floor.

The music alone made it enjoyable but the piece went on too long.
