Sleeping Beaux

Les Beaux dormants / Hélène Blackburn
(Sleeping Beaux)

Young audience ballet

Pièce pour 9 danseurs

A creation for young audiences designed by artists renowned worldwide. This encapsulates the Ballet of the OnR’s ambition to foster the link between children, adolescents and dance. Beaux dormants is the first choreography in a series based on fairy tales, a literary genre much loved on both sides of the river Rhine. Choreographer Hélène Blackburn is fascinated by the moment when childhood bursts into adolescence, when puberty changes young people’s relationship with the world, a painful rite of passage sometimes evocative of struggling through a thorny forest towards adulthood. For this creation for 9 dancers, the choreography has been broadly inspired by Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty. The choreographic language of Beaux dormants is based on classical vocabulary, including points, and grand theatricality.
