Chorégraphes contemporains

Palais Garnier - from 05 to 28 November 2020

Synopsis

Firmly entrenching the Paris Opera Ballet in today's multifaceted world, Aurélie Dupont, Director of Dance, has invited four contemporary choreographers to the Palais Garnier. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Damien Jalet, the two Belgian choreographers who created Boléro in 2013, return to the House, each presenting a new work, the former to music by Woodkid, the latter to a score by Koki Nakano. Twenty-three-year-old American choreographer Tess Voelker who has been working at the Nederlands Dans Theater since 2017, is proposing a first piece for our Company to the rhythms of a song by Nick Drake. Finally, French choreographer and stage director Mehdi Kerkouche, accompanied by musician Guillaume Alric, transports the audience into his hip-hop world.

Duration : 1h40 no interval

Marion Gautier de Charnacé and Antonin Monié rehearse Clouds Inside

Head in the clouds

By Antony Desvaux

On the occasion of the production "Créer aujourd'hui", devised by Aurélie Dupont to highlight contemporary creation, young dancer Tess Voelker, hailing from the Nederlands Dans Theater, proposes Clouds Inside, a pas de deux that gives pride of place to dreams and childhood, danced by Marion Gautier de Charnacé and Antonin Monié. Octave magazine interviews the two dancers from the Opera's Ballet to discuss the choreographer, her language and the meaning of Clouds Inside. In this unusual period, they share with us their pleasure of returning to the stage and look back on their rehearsal work. They also talk about the roles they interpret: the meeting between a man-metronome and a woman who lives with her head in the clouds.
