Four contemporary choreographers come together for a programme that leads the Opera’s dancers to a new form of modernity where bodies vibrate with intensity.

To open the evening, James Thierrée takes over the public areas of the Palais Garnier and introduces us to his dream-like world.
Israel’s Hofesh Shechter, often lauded for his telluric, trance-evoking dances, offers a new version of his piece The Art of Not Looking Back.
Spain’s Iván Pérez occupies the stage of the Opera for the first time with a creation for ten male dancers.
To conclude the evening, Canada’s Crystal Pite returns with The Seasons’ Canon, a dazzling creation that thrilled audiences at the Palais Garnier in Paris Opera 16/17 season.

The live transmission will include interviews with the choreographers by Aurélie Dupont, Director of Dance at the Paris Opera.

Thierrée / Shechter / Pérez / Pite will be broadcast live on Thursday 24 May 2018 at 19:30 in France and Europe, Morocco, Canada then will be shown later in cinemas in France and in others territories as Australia.
