This is a premiere for 30 Hip Hop-, Krump-, Break- and Voguing dancers… A first for Director Clément Cogitore and Choreographer Bintou Dembélé. And a first for Opéra Bastille in Paris. By bringing together urban dance and opera singing, they reinvent Jean-Philippe Rameau’s baroque masterpiece, LES INDES GALANTES. From rehearsals to public performances, it is a human adventure and a meeting of political realities: can a new generation of artists storm the Bastille today?
With CLÉMENT COGITORE
