Story

Can a new generation of artists conquer the Bastille today? For the very first time, 30 dancers reinvent Rameau’s baroque masterpiece “Les Indes Galantes”. None of them has a classical training, they are all masters of krump, break, popping and voguing. It is a premiere for director Clément Cogitore and choreographer Bintou Dembélé. And it’s a premiere for the Paris Opera itself, bringing urban dance and lyrical song together in a lively, colourful dialogue. From rehearsals to the premiere, we follow the dancing adventure and its challenges.

INDES GALANTES is a vibrant film, artistic, human and politically gripping. The film tells the collective dimension of this inspiring project, while the camera gives the individual protagonists space to express their feelings and shows how they put their heart and soul into this work. In INDES GALANTES we can see how they overcome the barriers between these different worlds. And we learn through them how we can all admire each other.
