Banishing bad luck and the pandemic, Hélène Blackburn responds to the Grands Ballets’ invitation to create a unique piece. In a time where meetings are rare, the choreographer happily dives into a universe filled with exceptional dancers. Lively, precise, and masterful, her dance invades time and space with pleasurable moments and chance meetings.
Mirroring pagan rituals from past pandemics, Fête Sauvage reminds us of how irresistible the desire to join others can be. With music from Dear Criminals, Fête Sauvage invites us to a few minutes of stolen happiness and pleasure, helping us forget and rediscover temporarily the lost paradise of our previous life.
Maude Sabourin, Raphaël Bouchard
Music : Dear Criminals, ‘Solo Daph’, ‘Disco 1’
