Casting is now online for the Sous Apparence/Un jour ou deux Programme
Only one cast for the Gillot : Vincent Chaillet, Laëtitia Pujol, Alice Renavand
Three casts for the Cunningham : Emilie Cozette/Hervé Moreau/Nicolas Paul -Stéphanie Romberg or Laurence Laffon/Florian Magnenet/Fabien Révillion

Thank you - well hopefully no one gets injured beforehand. I'm not really familiar with Chaillet myself, but Pujol and Renavand should do fine in the modern piece.

Those images definitely leave me wondering what exactly went on. ;)
Hopefully there will be some video clips of the dancing at some point. What has the audience reaction been like?

Well, I went to the Première. My own feeling is that it is not a success Posted Image. The sum up of what I feel, heard and read after is that the Merce Cunningham piece is the real interest of the evening...
It will pop up some day as the evening will be recorded for a TV broadcast!

Too bad, but not exactly unexpected. A person could have all the talent in the world for choreography and their first piece will still have problems. If you are lucky, it will be described as, "promising". ;)
It strikes me as being a bit bizarre to thrust Gillot onto a major stage for her first work, but they did what they did. Historically speaking, what master choreographer started out their career with a ballet for the POB, Mariinsky, NYCB, Bolshoi main stage? Precisely NONE that I can recall hearing of.

This is not exactly her first attempt of choreography and that's all the more "bizarre" as you said.

Can anyone comment on the Cunningham piece (Un jour ou deux)? It certainly looks striking and the Parisian dancers look striking in it.

I like it. I'm not familiar with Cunningham so I can't really comment on what's make its particularity but I like everything of if, the atmosphère, the costumes, the lighting,the music, the movements and the staging. The choreography was fluid and ethereal at time, dancers were flying in group... even if it was serious and quite obsessive...
I think it was critically acclaimed...

Fortunately, I love Froustey...her FMG uploaded was terrific.


Me too! I await a promotion for her anxiously. She is my current favorite among the women at POB. She just has that certain something that makes me watch her to the exclusion to most everyone else on her stage.

Great shot of the company arrayed on the Garnier stairs.
