About

In few words:

"My work offers just another way of contemplating dance, but it doesn’t go against it."

- Jérôme Bel


Jérôme Bel, one of the greatest artists of the international scene, has profoundly transformed the codes of classical and contemporary dance, in particular with the solo Véronique Doisneau, created in 2004 for the Paris Opera Ballet. Now he returns with a new creation, a group ballet that combines dancers and non-dancers, inviting them to reflect on their work, their identity, their place in the company and in society.


This demanding approach, both sociological and choreographic, demonstrates that every angle, even the most radical, is possible. Jerome Robbins's masterpiece, Goldberg Variations, which will be entering the repertoire, is just as demanding. The American choreographer's seminal work was created in 1971 to music by Johann Sebastian Bach. This series of variations translates all the musicality and refined sensitivity of Jerome Robbins, a master in the art of neo-classical dance. Evoking the whole range of human emotions, from the darkest to the most joyful, this abstract ballet allows the dancers of the company, be it the Corps de Ballet or the Étoiles, to present a complete palette of classical ballet language in both 18th century costumes and modern tunics and leotards. It is also a way of showing the timeless character of the art of dance raised to its highest degree of excellence.
