Presentation

Spectres of Europe takes the form of a diptych examining the past and the fate of our continent exactly one hundred years after the end of the First World War. With The Green Table, a piece by Kurt Jooss premiered in Paris just months before Adolf Hitler rose to power, the expressionist aesthetics are fuelled by echoes of the Mediaeval Dance of Death to evoke - often sarcastically - all the horrors of oppression and war. As for Bruno Bouché, he is setting his creation to music by Johann Sebastian Bach and Sufjan Stevens, with the complicity of the musician Nicolas Worms. Fireflies, as this dance company creation is entitled, is at once a political comment and a poetic gesture, and particularly recalls the figure of Pier Paolo Pasolini. Metaphors of a spirit of the resistance living on the fringe of the ordered world, fireflies are fragile luminescent rhizomes that glitter in the night. Fireflies is the first collaboration between the writer Daniel Conrod, an associate artist of the Ballet of the OnR, and Bruno Bouché.
