My Black Chosen One & To our fauns
May 23 & 24, 2019 from 8 pm • Orsay Museum
Olivier Dubois knows that he cannot answer the call of Stravinsky’s landmark piece Sacre with a single work. He is therefore creating a collection of Sacre(s) du Printemps , a dissection which he is offering us so that we may learn more about the ghosts of this piece, about elements which relate to it. Prêt à baiser, the first piece of the collection, premiered in May 2012 at the Modern Art Museum of the city of Paris. In December 2014, it was Sacre 2 with the great dancer/ choreographer, Germaine Acogny, the mythical “chosen one” of Maurice Béjart, who never danced this particular work. It was for this 70 year old queen that Olivier Dubois created this new Sacre, drawing from the depths of her African soul to create a new, compelling vision of the work.
