Four breath-taking works by four contemporary choreographers describing our present-day... Paris Opera and Ballet’s dance director Aurélie Dupont invited four international choreographers to create four brand new ballet pieces and presented the following question: What does the idea of creating in the field of dance, which has been reshaped and restricted by the global pandemic, mean to you today? Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Damien Jalet, Tess Voelker, Mehdi Kerkouche responded to this question at different venues and stages of the historical stage of the Palais Garnier, with dancers from the Paris Opera’s ‘Principal Dancers’ (Les Premiers Danseurs) and Corps de Ballet. With gorgeous choreography in the ballets titled Exposure, Clouds Inside, Et Si, and Brise-Lames, Palais Garnier’s impressive corridors, walls, stage, rehearsal rooms, and even cellars became spaces and stages for the four choreographer’s exploration of the question ‘What does it mean to create today?’ The show begins with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Exposure, which instantly captures our hearts with music from Wookid’s latest album S16 and Chanel’s costumes. Sidi Larbi is followed by NDT dancer Tess Volker’s choreography Clouds Inside. Next is the poignant work Brise-Lames by the famous Belgian choreographer Damien Jalet. Mehdi Kerkouche takes the stage with hip-hop immediately afterward. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui has stated that, even with masks, there was great pleasure in sharing suggestions for creating a body that moves, stands, waves and jumps. He has added that despite successive cancellations, it was crucial to bring the work to audiences with the recording of what happened on the stage of the Palais Garnier.
These pieces, which are likely candidates of being one of the most important records of surviving with art, are presented in the online programme of the İstanbul Theatre Festival...
