A way of anchoring the Opera Ballet in today's plural world, Aurélie Dupont, Director of Dance, invites four contemporary choreographers to the Palais Garnier. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Damien Jalet, two Belgian choreographers who created Boléro in 2013, return this time to each offer a creation, the first to music by Woodkid, the second to music by Koki Nakano. Tess Voelker, a twenty-three-year-old American dancer and choreographer who has worked for the Nederlands Dans Theater since 2017, offers a first piece for the Ballet dancers to the rhythm of a song by Nick Drake. Finally, accompanied by the musician Guillaume Alric, the French Mehdi Kerkouche, choreographer and director, leads the spectators into his hip-hop universe.
