As the Paris Opera Ballet recreates The Rite of spring, Octave magazine talks to Dominique Brun. The choreographer reflects on the figure of Nijinsky and explains the way in which he rethought classical language, in particular with the use of the "en-dedans" and gravity, in the works created for Diaghilev's Ballets russes. In her dialogue with the Paris Opera Ballet’s dancers, the choreographer has attempted to rediscover, through historical and iconographic research, what she calls "the body of 1913".
