The Second Detail / TURNING_motion sickness version — Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon


  • 20.00 Concertzaal
  • 21.35 Expected end time
  • 19.15 Introduction by Gloria Carlier


A varied diptych by the renowned Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon, for the first time in Bruges

In The Second Detail renowned choreographer William Forsythe reconstructs the classical (ballet) canon. He does this by fragmenting not only the dance, but also the light, space and sound. The recent works of the Italian Sciarroni – the second choreographer in this diptych – are inspired by surprising physical actions: Bavarian folk dancing, juggling, or handball being played by the blind. This time he has the dancers of the renowned French ballet spin around their own axis and thus literally takes us for a wild spin.
