A tale in dance at La Goutte d’Or

Ramzi Ben Sliman signs Grand Hotel Barbès for the 3e Scène

By Milena Mc Closkey 16 January 2019

For the Paris Opera's 3e Scène, director Ramzi Ben Sliman has imagined a fiction blending poetry and realism and set in Paris' Goutte d'Or district. A genuine Ulysses of modern times, the protagonist displays talent and cunning, breaking the boundaries between classical dance and hip-hop during a breakdance battle. Faithful to his hero, Ramzi Ben Sliman does not oppose tradition and modernity as he pays tribute to the emotion of dance, be it on stage or in the street. In this interview, Ramzi Ben Sliman discusses the film's creation, his relationship with the Opera and his experience of the 3e Scène.
