Ballet National de Marseille

Marseille (FR)

Tempo Vicino, Le Trouble de Narcisse and Organizing Demons

The Ballet National de Marseille performs with 20 dancers. The National Ballet performed classical danse d’école for a long time before it started performing with great virtuosity works by contemporary choreographers under the Belgian Frédéric Flamand. Steps presents three choreographic works by Lucinda Childs, Frédéric Flamand and Emanuel Gat. An evening of coolness and elegance, so typical of French dance.

The American Lucinda Childs is known as the Grande Dame of minimal dance. Her meticulous step concepts have rewritten history. In Tempo Vicino, she presents dance as a form of pure spatial art with her sixteen dancers. The connection between dance and architecture is also Frédéric Flamand's domain. The Belgian tackles a very emotional subject in Le Trouble de Narcisse and employed the New York star architects Diller and Scofidio to create the spatial concept. Organizing Demons, the third work of the evening is by the Israeli Emanuel Gat. The premier is a co-production involving the Migros Culture Percentage Steps Dance Festival.
