About the Film:

It's a first for 30 hip-hop, krump, break, voguing dancers... A first for director Clément Cogitore and choreographer Bintou Dembélé. And a first for the Paris Opera. By creating a dialogue between urban dance and lyrical song, they reinvent together the baroque masterpiece of Jean-Philippe Rameau, Les Indes Galantes. From rehearsals to public performances, it is a human adventure and an encounter with political issues that we follow: can a new generation of artists take the Bastille today?

C’est une première pour 30 danseurs de hip-hop, krump, break, voguing… Une première pour le metteur en scène Clément Cogitore et pour la chorégraphe Bintou Dembélé. Et une première pour l’Opéra de Paris. En faisant dialoguer danse urbaine et chant lyrique, ils réinventent ensemble le chef-d’œuvre baroque de Jean-Philippe Rameau, Les Indes Galantes. Des répétitions aux représentations publiques, c’est une aventure humaine et une rencontre aux enjeux politiques que nous suivons : une nouvelle génération d’artistes peut-elle aujourd’hui prendre la Bastille ?
