From India to Ukraine, choreographic world tour at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées

Thirty-five evenings devoted to dance this season at TCE. They draw a choreographic world tour organized with skill and determination by Vony Sarfati, project manager and producer of the TranscenDanses series. “We wanted to bring back the Ukrainian Ballet. Michel Franck was particularly moved by their performance at Christmas 2022,” she said. We support, we get involved, that’s the style of the house. The company still working in kyiv in Ukraine at war will dance The Snow Queen. “In order not to use Russian music, the soundtrack is completely reinvented with other Western composers including Grieg and Massenet.” Already complex two years ago, the arrival of the troop will be a feat.

Also an exploit, but of a completely different kind, is Gigenis by Akram Khan. The choreographer traveled to India. There he discovered to what extent Indian culture and its great artists nourished his work, and how much his inspiration was renewed through contact with these masters. “At first we thought about bringing them for a small festival. And then Akram decided to direct them and go back on stage to link one to the other,” says Vony. The play is already scheduled to tour the world and stop in Paris in January. To complete this world tour, the season began with the arrival of the Ballets du Canada with three pieces by Canadian choreographers, Kudelka, Yong and Pite. It will end in April with Dialogues, organized between masters and a young person: Mats Ek gives back his A sort of…, Akram Khan covers for two young dancers from the Ballet de Flandres the duo of Sacred Monsters written for Guillem and Akram Khan. Added to this is an extract from OCD Love by Sharon Eyal and Couch, a pas de deux by Samantha Lynch for the Norwegian National Ballet.
