Crystal Pite

Palais Garnier - from 26 October to 23 November 2019

Synopsis

After the unanimously acclaimed premiere of The Seasons’ Canon in 2016, Crystal Pite is reuniting with the dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet for a series of sixty‑minute performances divided up into as many choreographed sequences. Born in Canada and trained at the Frankfurt Ballet, the choreographer is steeped in the language of Forsythe, Kylián and Mats Ek. Infusing each of her choreographies with an exuberantly communicative emotional charge, she calls on her dancers to move beyond their limits. Her impassioned dance possesses an attention to detail that propels its performers into the frenetic cadenza of total performance.

The video streams offered by the Paris Opera allow you to discover or rediscover some of the productions that have marked recent seasons. Alongside the videos, Octave invited a number of artists who participated in these productions to add their own personal touch. Willingly playing along, they agreed to film themselves at home in order to relate their experiences, share their memories of rehearsals and performances and discuss the technical and artistic challenges of their roles. They also explain how they continue their artistic activity during lockdown, whilst waiting to return to the stage and their public.
