Cédric Delorme-Bouchard teams up with BOP (Ballet-Opéra-Pantomime) to create an astonishing show of light, movement and sound based on the piano compositions of Olivier Messiaen, a leading figure in late 20th-century contemporary music. On circular arena, 4 grand pianos surround a black monolith, an epicentre from which light and images animated by the frenetic musical score emerge. From this luminous altar, 9 dancers join in the mysterious celebration, their movements embodying Messiaen’s ever-changing sacred rhythms.
