Enter the ark of contemporary dance
In the framework of the Monaco Dance Forum, from 12 to 16 December, the Ballets de Monte-Carlo Company invites the public to discover dance that is inventive, contemporary, perfectly off-beat, but always stimulating and generous. The festivities will begin with Dimitris Papaioannou. The creator of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens offers immersion in a circus of the absurd with his show The Great Tamer, presented in Monaco after a two-year world tour. The public will then be able to discover Hofesh Schechter’s Grand Finale. Originally from Israel, a breeding ground for dancers and artists that revolves around the Batsheva, the London choreographer has imposed his powerful style, drawing from the energy of rock concerts, to show a humanity that is sometimes adrift. And finally, the Grimaldi Forum’s Salle des Princes will host the Malandain Biarritz Ballet who will present a piece entitled Noé. Through the myth of the Flood, Thierry Malandain imagines how a human being climbing on board the ark liquidates the past to start over again from scratch. In parallel with these shows, there will be symposiums, screenings, workshops and master classes that will help make the Monaco Dance Forum an international platform for dance in the Principality.
