This is a premiere for 30 hip-hop, krump, break, voguing dancers... A first for director, Clément Cogitore, and for choreographer, Bintou Dembélé. And a first for Opera 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 real adventure and an encounter with political issues that we follow: can a new generation of artists storm the Bastille today?
In 1735, Rameau created Les Indes Galantes, which reflected French colonial expansion and represented the myth of the noble savage. In 2019, Philippe Béziat filmed a generation of dancers who took centre stage of Opera Bastille in Paris for the very first time and who re-appropriated this baroque masterpiece by affirming another reading of European history.
