Anno 1715, Versailles. In the private chambers of the Sun King, a peculiar ritual takes place: about a hundred guests witness the creation of a new work for viola da gamba and continuo from the hand of court composer Marin Marais. The King listens demurely at first, but then, to the loyal audience's surprise, gradually starts moving. The court has no other choise but to follow and scrupulously imitate their King. A weird choreography comes about: something between yoga exercises, a baroque court dance and an eminent aerobics class.
