United in their quest for beauty, three contemporary choreographers each bring the stage alive according to their own sensibility to enhance the aesthetics of their dance. Ten years after his first creation for the Paris Opera Ballet, the Japanese dancer and choreographer Saburo Teshigawara has been asked to create a new piece for the dancers of the Company. With his background in the visual arts, he adopts a comprehensive approach to choreography, scenography and costumes. Playing on luminosity and darkness, appearances and disappearances, he introduces two dancers onto a bare stage clouded by effusions of smoke which work to blur perceptions. In Glacial Decoy, Trisha Brown, the emblematic figure of American postmodern dance, explores the magic of silence. The photographic works of Robert Rauschenberg punctuate the passage of time and structure the space in front of which which the dancers circulate in fluid and sensual body movements and gestures. With Doux Mensonges, Jir?í Kylián translates into images the impossibility of being together and the impossibility of being apart. To the Madrigals of Gesualdo and Monteverdi, performed by Les Arts Florissants, he combines song and dance, the visible and the invisible, revealing the wings of the theatre, a metaphor for the tenuous dividing line between reality and lies.
