Ballet in two acts (2017)
Enter Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman’s surprising and dreamlike universe with PLAY. Created for the Paris Opera Ballet in 2017, where it sold out an extraordinary 25 performance premiere season, it’s a piece that contemplates the place and meaning of play in our lives…
A sparkling personality on the contemporary dance scene, Ekman’s language, both visceral and tinged with humour, combines theatricality and classical and contemporary vocabulary alike. Set to a lively musical score by Mikael Karlsson, the metallic structures, dancers suspended in space, and the elevations are but a few of the powerful images that will strike your imagination!
It’s a production full of joy, enticing rhythms and communicative energy, danced to perfection by the Paris Opera Ballet’s stunning performers.
