L’enfer d’un monde | ZemmourBallet

14 September 202220:00Les Grands Ballets' Studio-Theatre | Edifice Wilder


L’enfer d’un monde is a choreographic creation stamped with humanity. Inspired by the steep rise of domestic violence in the aftermath of the pandemic and subsequent lockdown, the piece explores both the depths of human violence and the hope for a redeeming strength to pull through and achieve rebirth.

Examining both violence and hope, while remaining carefully inclusive and non-gendered, Nicolas Zemmour explores inner thoughts, rites of passage within our deepest inner self. Realizing the world is quickly sliding towards intimate and daily violence brings the necessity to forge ties between the art of dance and the evil of violence.

Created during the pandemic, the piece is inevitably tainted by a climate of idleness, loneliness, violence, and isolation, but also of hope and renaissance. As it has been lacking for some time, the choreographer wishes to put sensibility back into the heart of our lives. L’enfer d’un monde is also a reference to humanity’s founding myths, inviting us to revisit the unending poetry of our consecutive rebirths.
