Dance performance "Just before Midnight" by French choreographers
Just Before Midnight comprises a mix of live “Pas de Deux” performed by four acclaimed classical ballet dancers, and the film Le Ruban. The evening programme features a woman in four states of mind and emotions: The innocence of first love; forgiveness as a testimony of true love; simple passion, and freedom and lightness of being.
In Le Ruban, a “making of” ballet film, the offender Anton redeems himself, thanks to his wife’s forgiveness and help from prison officers. Starring Julia Bailet, Jean Sebastien Colau, Mikael Champs and Xavier Juyon. Choreographed by Gregory Gaillard; directed by Bérengère Prevost.
The matinée opens with performances by dancers Jonathan Guillarme, Elsa Raymond and Ma Ni, and also features Le Ruban.
