About

In few words:

Hofesh Shechter, Jerome Robbins and Crystal Pite: three singular figures from the world of dance brought together in a programme that successively explores memory, love and identity.

In The Art of Not Looking Back, Shechter opens the Pandora’s Box of his childhood and confronts nine women: nine images of an absent mother that he sets in motion to the rhythm of saturated music. Chopin’s Nocturnes provide an elegant setting for Robbins’ In the Night, in which he deploys three duets against a backdrop of a starry sky for the space of a melancholy dream that melts into the darkness. First performed in 2016 at the Paris Opera, Pite’s Seasons’ Canon illuminates with a stormy light its clusters of human forms: the choreography brings to life a matrix traversed by echoes mingling with Vivaldi’s strings.
