In few words:
A leading figure of contemporary photography, Japanese visual artist Hiroshi Sugimoto sounds out a changing world and explores the passage of time. Invited for the first time to the Paris Opera, he is joining forces with the choreographer Alessio Silvestrin, a colleague of William Forsythe, for a new production with the dancers of the Company. Set to a selection of songs by the composer James Blake, Blake Works I is Forsythe’s latest piece created for the Paris Opera Ballet. His inimitable signature is omnipresent in this work which stands out for its speed and energy.
