Thierree / Shechter / Perez / Pite
28 May @ 7.30 pm - 10.30 pmAED 45
Four contemporary choreographers come together for a programme with the dancers of the Paris Opera. James Thierrée took over the public areas of the Palais Garnier to introduce us to the dream-like world of Frôlons. Canada’s Crystal Pite returns with The Seasons’ Canon, a dazzling creation that thrilled audiences at the Palais Garnier last season. Iván Pérez from Spain occupied the stage of the Opera for the first time with The Male Dancer, a creation for ten male dancers. And Israel’s Hofesh Shechter, often lauded for his trance-evoking dance style, offered a new version of his piece The Art of Not Looking Back (above). Recorded at Palais Garnier, Paris, and shown in the well-equipped cinema room of AF Dubai. Tickets are AED 35 for AF members, AED 45 for others; book via [email protected].
