    Recorded musics 

    A dream evening for lovers of modern dance with no less than six of the world's leading choreographers, each exploring in their own way the human soul in all its richness and diversity of language.  The doyen Mats Ek will open the evening with an extract from his ballet Juliet and Romeo, a subtle work that plays on all registers of emotion. Canadian choreographer Emma Portner, spotted for her successful collaborations with Apple, Netflix, the Guggenheim Museum and several American music stars will follow with her ballet Islands. Berlin-based Sasha Waltz will explore the intimacy of body-to-body contact and the versatility of moods to the sublime music of Schubert.  Jirí Kylián will continue to question this theme of the human soul through his piece 14'20'' while Ohad Naharin will deliver his powerful and committed version of Ravel's Bolero in an arrangement by electronic music composer Isao Tomita.  Finally, the icing on the cake is a creation by the Canadian Crystal Pite, a choreographer who claims the heritage of Forsythe, Kylián and Mats Ek and who shook audiences at the Palais Garnier alight in 2019 with her piece Body and soul.  Six strong contemporary dance figures exploring a spectrum of feelings for a unique evening.
