The SUBS are hosting 5 solos as part of Danser Encore with the Opéra de Lyon, carried by big names in contemporary dance.
In the spring of 2020, from an impossibility, the program Danser Encore was imagined by Julie Guibert, the new director of the Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon.
Thirty artists were invited to each write a solo for the Ballet’s 30 dancers, in a project that will span several seasons. For the 2021 Biennale, five commissions have been given to the choreographers Claire Bardainne & Adrien Mondot, Marcos Morau, Rachid Ouramdane, Nina Santes and Noé Soulier. Each piece crafts a singular story with the chosen performer, and reflects the choreographer’s own distinctive aesthetic. The solos centre on subjects such as appearance-disappearance, the limits of perception, the faculty of memory, the body’s changes and its fragmented exploration, and moving seamlessly from one world to another. These five works are a sense-stirring and intimate way of discovering Tyler Galster, Paul Vezin, Leoannis Pupo-Guillen, Elsa Montguillot de Mirman and Katrien de Bakker, some of the Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon’s matchless performers
