With this choreography for twelve female dancers, Olivier Dubois pays vibrant homage to the body, the female figure and dedication. A piece with manifestly strong allegorical potential, this ballet transforms the stage into a place of resistance, dialogue and collective insurrection. Fascinated by the obsessive dimension of Ravel’s “Boléro”, Olivier builds on these unstoppable rhythmics to exploit their warlike qualities. The first bar has begun, the revolution is underway. “Révolution is humanity taking over the microphone”, explains Olivier, as “only total and considered effort and commitment allow the treasure that is humanity to spring forth.”
Révolution is the first part of the project “Etude Critique pour un Trompe-l’Oeil”
