Malandain Ballet Biarritz: Roméo et Juliette

Description

Roméo et Juliette is clearly about the personal hatred existing between the two most powerful families in Verona, the Montaigus and the Capulets. It is also, of course, about the tragic fate of two innocent lovers.

Thierry Malandain uses that mythical love story about love and death, while relying on Hector Berlioz’s « Symphonie Dramatique », to lift the gravestone over a dream that was too beautiful.

In the film, everything is tensioned and necessary in this choir room, where images succeed, fluid and strong, as arisen from the musical flow. And, here the choreography of Malandain is created with arabesques, pirouettes, jumps, constantly broken and redistributed in an urgent motion.
