Dialogue towards infinity

At the Hawk's Well, between Japonism and Celtic mythology

Invited for the first time to the Paris Opera, choreographer Alessio Silvestrin discusses his encounter with Hiroshi Sugimoto, and the birth of At the Hawk's Well. Created for the dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet, this piece draws on a text by Irish poet W. B. Yeats and on Noh theatre. A total work that also brings together composer Ryoji Ikeda and fashion designer Rick Owens, it probes our relationship with time, death and identity.
