NATIONAL BALLET DE MARSEILLE In co-production with Théâtre de la VilleA new production focused on the strength of women in the choreographic world. The National Ballet of Marseille presents choreographies by Lucinda Childs, Lasseindra Ninja, Oona Doherty and Tânia Carvalho. The arrival of the collective (LA)HORDE as director of the National Ballet of Marseille (BNM) in 2019 marks a historic break. Created by Roland Petit in 1972, then directed by Marie-Claude Pietragalla, Frédéric Flamand and Emio Greco/Pieter C. Scholten, the southernmost of the nineteen National Choreographic Centres has always built bridges between his time and a dance where the idea of contemporary ballet found an echo, each time different. With Marine Brutti, Jonathan Debrouwer and Arthur Harel who founded (LA)HORDE in 2013, the range of possibilities now extends beyond questions of choreographic styles. At three, they formed a veritable think tank around choreographic creation and each of their creations explored new looks and avenues of reflection. Dance is an element integrated into a rhizome of languages that respond to each other. Invited to continue their upheaval of habits within the institution, they imagined an artistic project for the BNM that aims to integrate all the employees of the house, including administrative, technical and artistic staff, and to design a way to create where the company will not be the "receptacle" of their projects. The changes that are coming have also resulted in a profound renewal of the company, the majority of dancers having preferred to pursue their careers elsewhere. Thirteen new performers were recruited from, among others, the Batsheva Dance Company (Tel Aviv), New York and the Ballet Junior de Genève. ROOM WITH A VIEW gave a first glimpse of the new Marseille style, a show created at the Châtelet, in total osmosis with the composer Rone.
