William Forsythe / Trisha Brown / Jérôme Bel - Lyon Opera Ballet

From the 14th to the 20th of September 2017 at the Lyon Opera House

The Lyon Opera House Ballet opens the season having given carte blanche to Jérôme Bel, who has chosen to present two pieces from the repertoire: ‘The Second Detail’ by William Forsythe and ‘Set and Reset’ by Trisha Brown. In the third part, he will present his own creation, a piece that raises questions about dance in the twenty-first century.

The Second Detail constructs and deconstructs a theme, deals with variation and contrasts of movement and rhythms, freeing energy against a backdrop of electronic music. It is expansive, magnificent and virtuosic.

Set and Reset frees bodies in continuous, fluid movement, to music by Laurie Anderson. It gives the impression of a dance that is spontaneous and improvised, yet well-constructed, in a continual ebb and flow. Generous and superb!

Finally, we eagerly look forward to discovering Bel’s creation. His dance is a reflection of his time: that of freedom of the body and liberation of movement. Jérôme Bel brings his original perspective to society and politics through the prism of dance. He is not afraid to be provocative, and to let the dancers express their sensibilities and use their voices… Contemporary and exciting!
