Thierrée / Pite / Pérez / Shechter
PARIS  •  Palais Garnier  •  18 May - 8 June 2018
Four contemporary choreographers come together for a programme that leads the Opera’s dancers to a new form of modernity. To open the evening, James Thierrée takes over the public areas of the Palais Garnier and introduces us to his dream-like world. Canada’s Crystal Pite returns with The Seasons’ Canon, a dazzling creation that thrilled audiences at the Palais Garnier last season. Spain’s Iván Pérez occupies the stage of the Opera for the first time with a creation for ten male dancers. To conclude the evening, Israel’s Hofesh Shechter, often lauded for his telluric, trance-evoking dances, offers a new version of his piece The Art of Not Looking Back.

Tristan + Isolde
AMSTERDAM  •  Nationale Opera & Ballet  •  13 - 26 June 2018

Tristan + Isolde

Choreographer David Dawson breathes new life into the timeless love story of Tristan and Isolde, with his abstract narrative and elegant dance style. It is a story about the passionate and doomed love between two young people who come from historical and socially opposed camps and who die a tragic death for love. Dawson asked the Polish composer Szymon Brzóska to write a new composition for this old myth.

DanceAfrica 2018

This year’s performance offers a taste of the rhythm and spirit of South Africa, acknowledging Nelson Mandela’s centennial birthday and the contributions of freedom fighters past and present.

South African supergroup Ignoma Kwazulu Natal Dance Company brings traditional movement idioms alongside the contemporary stylings of Durban-based Siwela Sonke Dance Theatre. They are joined by the BAM/Restoration Dance Youth Ensemble and, together, rejoice in the transcendent power of movement and music in a range of forms and traditions. This year’s performance draws parallels between South African anti-apartheid and American civil rights movements, portraying the struggles for justice and, ultimately, serving up triumphant celebrations of culture.
