In a few words

The latest choreographed work of the Pockemon Crew and the Lyon Opera Ballet, built from their shared history, with a combination of hip-hop and classical music: a remix of Bach’s Suites, both lively and gentle.

Introductory

For over 20 years, the paths of the Pockemon Crew and the Lyon Opera Ballet have crossed many a time, from the constitution of a breakdancing crew on the steps of the Opera to the production of Millésime in 2019. Both companies meet again in Contrappunto, seeking to draw links between their respective landscapes. With a remix by Valentin Petiteau of Bach’s Cello Suite No. 2 in D minor, the sensitive performance of three Pockemon Crew and two Ballet members takes flight against a backdrop of fog and electricity. This piece, written in accordance with the principles of counterpoint, features vastly different techniques, bouncing off each other and mixed together into an infinite string of dance possibilities.
