Malandain Ballet Biarritz: Silhouette, Estro, Nocturnes

Description

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.

Silhouette

Thierry Malandain choreography · Frederik Deberdt solo dancer

This solo was created for dancer Frederik Deberdt in Biarritz, in the gardens of the Hotel de Silhouette, named after Louis XV. ‘s general treasurer Etienne de Silhouette.

Estro

Thierry Malandain choreography · Antonio Vivaldi music

Thierry Malandain created this ballet on the elevation of desire with the aim to reach the peak, or in the words of André Lendger „it is easier today to climb a peak of 8000 meters than getting a few centimeters within oneself.”

Nocturnes

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.
