BODY AND SOUL - Choreography by Crystal Pite

Drawing on the languages of William Forsythe, Jiří Kylián and Mats Ek, the Vancouver-based choreographer has invited the dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet to push their limits. By examining the collective and the place of the individual in the human group, she has infused Body and Soul with a powerful and communicative emotional charge.

Ballet de l'Opéra national de Paris

The Paris Opera Ballet is one of the most prestigious and oldest classical dance companies in the world. Originally, in 1669 and at the instigation of Jean-Baptiste Colbert, the corps de ballet was integrated into the Royal Academy of Music. Today it is part of the Opéra national de Paris. The 154 dancers give about 180 performances per season. The dancers of the ballet have mostly been trained in its own dance school, considered one of the best in the world. Thus, the ballet of the National Opera of Paris has its own breeding ground and recruits very few from outside, which serves the unity of style of French dance.
