Robyn Orlin

Oh Louis... We move from the ballroom to hell while we have to tell ourselves stories at night so that we can sleep...

What lies on the reverse side of the familiar? Robyn Orlin is always looking at gures, symbols and emblems of power that originate without exception from Western culture, so as to dissect them and reveal their hidden aspects. In her new solo the South African choreographer turns her attention to the Sun King, Louis XIV. Together with Benjamin Pech, Danseur Étoile of the Ballet de l’Opéra de Paris, and the musician Loris Barrucand, she examines the first dancer in the French kingdom and inventor of classical ballet, who put dance in the service of his politics.
