Romeo et Juliette

Choreographer Joëlle Bouvier
Dance performance Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève

In “Roméo et Juliette” (Romeo and Juliet), choreographed on the extracts of Serge Prokofiev's three suites for orchestra, Joëlle Bouvier wished to go back to the world of the fable, to evacuate a specific era and costumes that held too many connotations and preferred to focus her research on the heart of the drama.
This creation invites to an encounter with the dancers of the Ballet of the Grand Theatre of Geneva. “Together, we let our bodies be enveloped by the gentleness and the fury of this music, we took our inspiration from its rhythm, its taste and its poetry to write the gestures, the portés, the momentums, the breaks that would speak, recount the passionate adventure of two lovers” (Joëlle Bouvier).

A- fter resuming his studies (Maîtrise de Linguistique - Lyon ii, Maîtrise des sciences et Techniques de la Communication - grenoble iii), he then focused on video, first in the field of fine arts at the espace Lyonnais d'art Contemporain (ELAC) and with the group « Frigo », and then in dance.
   On creation of the Maison de la Danse in Lyon in 1980, he was asked to undertake a video documentation project that he has continued ever since.

       - He promoted the creation of a video-bar and projection room, both dedicated to welcoming school pupils.
       - He started «présentations de saisons» in pictures.
       - He oversaw the DVD publication of Le tour du monde en 80 danses, a pocket video library produced by the Maison de la Danse for the educational sector.

       - He launched the series “scènes d'écran” for television and online. He undertook the video library's digital conversion and created Numeridanse.

In the 1970s, artists’ drive towards a new classic had been ongoing for more than a half century and several generations had already formed since the Russian Ballets. As the years went by, everyone defended or defends classical dance as innovative, unique, connected to the other arts and the preoccupations of its time.
