Choreography: Hélène Blackburn
Music : Dear Criminals, ‘Solo Daph’, ‘Disco 1’
Warding off ill fortune and the pandemic, Hélène Blackburn accepted an invitation from Les Grands Ballets to create a piece for 8 dancers. In these times of rare and fortuitous encounters, the choreographer plunges with pleasure into the world of these exceptional performers.
Lively and precise, her dance, never without a virtuosic element, unfolds in time and space by way of a succession of solos and duos that comprise instants of both delight and impromptu encounters.
Like the pagan festivities that marked the imaginations of pandemics past, this little example of one reminds us of just how much the call of the other can prove to be irresistible. To the music by the band Dear Criminals, Fête Sauvage invites us to minutes of happiness and stolen pleasures, so that we may forget and immerse ourselves for a few brief moments in the paradise lost of life as it was.
Casting : James Lyttle, Julia Bergua, Nicholas Jones, Éline Malègue, Raphaël Bouchard, Maude Sabourin, Melih Mertel, Kiara DeNae Felder
