Pascal Dusapin & Sasha Waltz
The season opens with the Belgian premiere of this production, which was acclaimed by audiences during its world premiere at Théatre des Champs-Elysées. Composer Pascal Dusapin and choreographer Sasha Waltz invite you to an encounter in the world of the dead, between two beings who had lived an impossible love. Passion calls upon dance through ‘movements of the soul’ which bring to life the vibrant and sensual lamento sung by Her and Him. Pascal Dusapin has asked choreographer Sasha Waltz to stage Passion, with the extraordinary singers Barbara Hannigan and Georg Nigl, as well as the dancers from the Sasha Waltz & Guests company.
Two memorable performances by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker performed in the setting of Villers-la-Ville abbey. These two echoing works will once again find the natural lighting which prevailed during their premieres at the Avignon Festival. En Atendant will be performed at dawn, and Cesena, at dusk. In both of these works, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker continues her exploration of the Ars Subtilior. A dance performance not to be missed at the end of the summer!
The dance season at La Monnaie begins in the magical atmosphere of Villers-la-Ville Abbey. This summer, a mediaeval garden will be inaugurated, with four original guided tours for you to enjoy in this enchanting setting.
