Transfigured Night | Imago

Ensemble IMAGO, in artistic residency at FEU, is collaborating with choreographer Charlotte Hannah Colmant and FEU to present a program titled Transfigured Night, in which they create an interactive performance experience between musician, dancer, and audience. This performance aims to solidify IMAGO’s mission to collaborate with and embrace Paris’ diverse culture of dance, design, art, and more. IMAGO hopes to make concerts an exciting, immersive experience for their audiences. All the members of IMAGO have gathered from around the world to Paris to experience the blend of history and modernism that this city has to offer. We hope to further promote this idea with our combination of standard and new music performances.
