The visual artist and videographer Clément Cogitore and the choreographer Bintou Dembélé gathered around Jean-Philippe Rameau’s ballet opera for the first time during the filming of the short film Les Indes galantes for the Paris Opera’s platform “3e Scène”. This captivating initial dialogue between street dance and baroque music was pursued in order to present the whole opera on the stage of the Bastille Opera. The two artists evoke their work together and their intention to make us hear and see the work of Rameau differently, through bodies, gestures and sounds that intertwine to invent their own spaces of freedom.
