Les Forains , Ballet Urbain
True festival of youth and dance
2018 Edition

Eight hip hop dancers revisit the successful ballet Les Forains in 1945, as a tribute to this “true festival of youth and dance” (Jean Cocteau). The story about wandering artists doing their fabulous routine in a fair is the very expression of a life taking back its natural rights after a world war, and it still fascinates the performing artists of today. Anthony Égéa from Compagnie Rêvolution tries to restore the poetic dimension of composer Henri Sauguet’s work, with the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong playing the ballet score, mixing with DJ Frank2Louise’s electronic music.

Such a combination of classics and hip hop, ballet and acrobatics, deliver a real Urban Ballet that evokes the cutting-edge parade of a circus, and a striking show that provides a sharing moment for all, when our minds want to wander, to travel and to dream.

Each performance will be followed by a sharing session with the artists.
