Hôtel Folia

Commission by Frédéric Flamand, director of the Ballet National de Marseille.
Creation for 10 dancers of the Ballet National de Marseille on 6 and 7 May 2011 at the Opéra de Marseille.

Punctuated by a completely contrasting choreographic composition, the piece is built on the simultaneous, collaborative investigations of ten ballet dancers, stage director, the video director, the lighting designer and the composer. The dancers direct our attention from one screen to the next, taking us to multiple worlds that they bring into existence alternately, in a constant toing and froing. Worlds that are conceived on the spot, where speed rubs shoulders with immobility: enigmatic, intimate, fragile or violent, always deeply human.
