The film director Wendy Morgan has shot numerous videos for well-known musicians and clients in which dance, an art form that she loves, plays an important role. The Paris Opera’s proposal to contribute to the “3e Scène” has given her the exciting opportunity to work again with the American dancer Lil Buck. In “Étoiles, I see you”, Wendy Morgan transposed this star of “street dance”, who is famous for his adaptation of “The Dying Swan”, into one of the most history-laden temples of classical ballet worldwide.
Thanks to his commanding presence, this extraordinary performer not only stands his ground there, but the artworks of the past seem to communicate with him. His movements, look and style find unexpected counterparts in the sculptures and paintings of the Palais Garnier.
Wendy Morgan’s film captures the beauty of these different art forms which transcends time, but it also conserves a note of lightness and humour that corresponds to her subject’s personality.
