World Premiere - In attendance of Laurent Métivier, Head of the Audiovisual Department of the Opéra de Paris and Dimitri Krassoulia, producer for the films Phelléas and 3e scène for the Opéra de Paris.

Presented with the support of the Consulate General of France in Quebec City.

After the unanimously acclaimed premiere, of The Seasons' Canon in 2016, Crystal Pite is reuniting with the dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet for a new creation. Born in Canada and trained at the Frankfurt Ballet, the choreographer is steeped in the language of Forsythe, Kylián and Mats Ek/ Infusing each of her choreographies with an exuberantly communicative emotional charge, she calls on her dancers to move beyond their limits. Her impassioned dance possesses an attention to detail that propels its performers into the frenetic cadenza of total performance.


Tommy Pascal

It was in 2007 that Tommy ended his dancing career (Béjart Ballet Lausanne and Ballet Preljocaj), to devote himself entirely to video production, specifically in dance and music. He begins by making clips, dance videos, concerts and fashion clips.
It is in the dance recording that he finds his achievement, especially with choreographers like Ohad Naharin, Crystal Pite, Alexander Ekman, Olivier Dubois, Paul Lightfoot & Sol Leon, Marco Goecke ... These recordings are shot in prestigious places like the Paris Opera, Oslo Opera House, Stockholm Opera House, City Theater, Théâtre National de Chaillot, the 104 in Paris, ... He also directed three documentaries on dance.

Biographies have been provided by third parties.
