Malandain Ballet Biarritz: Silhouette, Estro, Nocturnes
With more than eighty works to his credit, Thierry Malandain developed a very personal vision of dance. Deeply linked to the concept of “Ballet” as an aesthetic movement, he gives priority to the dancing body and the celebration of its sensuality and humanity.

Thierry Malandain choreography · Frédéric Chopin music
Fréderic Chopin translated the moods that tortured him into his Nocturnes. By transcending the idea of combining two things as conflicting as dance and death, Nocturnes is as a fresco, like a dream crushed under the weight of eternal melancholy.
