Les Murmures du Passé is a disturbing journey through the secrets buried in our past. Three protagonists - Emmanuelle Martin, Janelle Hacault and Sara Harton - navigate the shadows of their past, haunted by whispers refusing to be silenced. Through a collaborative and inclusive creation process, the piece invites us to reflect on our own hidden truths. Choreographed by Kyra Jean Green on an original music from Pascal Champagne, the play poignantly reminds us how important it is to recognize and express our emotions.

Banishing bad luck and the pandemic, Hélène Blackburn responds to the Grands Ballets’ invitation to create a unique piece. In a time where meetings are rare, the choreographer happily dives into a universe filled with exceptional dancers. Lively, precise, and masterful, her dance invades time and space with pleasurable moments and chance meetings. Mirroring pagan rituals from past pandemics, Fête Sauvage reminds us of how irresistible the desire to join others can be. With music from Dear Criminals, Fête Sauvage invites us to a few minutes of stolen happiness and pleasure, helping us forget and rediscover temporarily the lost paradise of our previous life.

Fukuoka summarizes most of the method Marcos Morau has been pursuing for several years with his La Veronal company. He is committed to finding formal refinement without giving up on opposites such as inorganic and grotesque, rhythm and arrythmia, beauty and monstrosity. In this piece, Morau opposes flamenco in favour of abstract and dynamic gestures, rejecting any framework to allow both dancers to dive into their form. A show where flamenco and contemporary dance collide, both arts feeding and complementing one another, this stylistic piece draws the viewer in the heart of a unique choreographic universe.

The Man Who Travelled Nowhere in Time is a work based around a young man named Eytan. Eytan sees the world around him change, evolve, and grow yet he himself never changes. His journey is a quest to understand why he never ages and dies like the people around him. What he doesn’t know is that he only exists in the dreams and unconscious minds of others. Every day he sees people arrive passing through a hallway. This hallway is a place between reality and the unconscious mind. It is only in this place that he is in the same time and space as the other people who surround him.
