boléro 2
Choreography: Odile Duboc

Duet excerpted from trois boléros by Odile Duboc, 1996

“In the second bolero, the powerful resistance of Boris Charmatz’s and Emmanuelle Huynh’s dance is juxtaposed with progressive musical expansion. This pair, concentrated in a single point on the stage, is enveloped by music without ever being invaded by it. They slowly sculpt shared material that has something of abandon and sweetness, of attraction and desire, and of fusion and tearing away.”
Odile Duboc, 2000
