The music of Ravel
Angelin Preljocaj opens the Paris Festival in the summer with an exceptional revival of his Boléro ballet in a place that is no less exceptional : the Cour Lefuel of the Louvre Museum, a jewel of the Second Empire usually inaccessible to the public. Come experience this unique evening: stroll at your own pace in the Denon wing, enjoy the masterpieces in this privileged setting and join the Cour Lefuel for a sumptuous Boléro. Memorable excerpt from his show Gravité created in 2018, Angelin Preljocaj deploys, to the music of Ravel, a choreography for twelve dancers of rare coherence.
The majestic decor of the Louvre
In a calm and powerful unison, the bodies, linked together by a delicate harmony, form a vibrant heart that opens and closes like a kaleidoscope. At the Louvre, the majestic decor of the Court, the all-white costumes of Igor Chapurin and the shadowy light of Eric Soyer leave plenty of room for movement in its purest form. In the light of René Char, Angelin Preljocaj, who compares his choreographic writing to « furious craftsmanship », brings together here, in this version specially designed for the Louvre, the artisanal meticulousness of his writing and the passion for his art, amplified by the magic of the place.
