On the revival of Body and Soul, a ballet by Crystal Pite created in 2019 for the Paris Opera Ballet, Octave Magazine spoke with Silvia Saint-Martin. The Première danseuse looks back on her encounter with the choreographer on the creation of The Seasons’ Canon. She compares the imaginary realms of these two ballets, organic and plant-like in the former, but rather social and human in Body and Soul. She shares the feeling of inner ecstasy that the language of Crystal Pite arouses in its interpreters.
