Belarbi, Kader

Renowned dancer and choreographer, Kader Belarbi is characterized by an endless curiosity and a renewed appetite for dancing adventures.

After studying choreography at the School Dance of the Paris Opera, he joined the ballet corps in 1980, where he climbed the stage with brilliance. In 1989, he was named Star with the role of "The Bluebird" in Rudolf Nureyev's "Sleeping Beauty". Nineteen years later, he made his official farewells at the Ballet de l'Opéra in Paris with "Signs" by Carolyn Carlson.

Open to all styles, he danced the numerous ballets of the repertory of the Paris Opera and remains a familiar of the contemporary dance. He has been associated with numerous world premieres by major choreographers and aesthetics such as Roland Petit, Rudolf Noureev, John Neumeier, George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, Maurice Béjart, Maguy Marin, Dominique Bagouet, Saburo Teshigawara, Jirí Kylián, William Forsythe, Mats Ek and Pina Bausch.

Also a choreographer, Kader Belarbi is the author of forty ballets: "Giselle and Willy" (1991), "Salle des pas perdus" (1997), "Les Saltimbanques" (1998), "Hurlevent" (2002) for the Ballet de l'Opéra de Paris , "Les Épousés" (2004), "La Bête et la Belle" (2005) for the Grands Ballets Canadiens, "Entrelacs" for the National Ballet of China, "The Wonderful Mandarin" for the Ballet of the Grand Théâtre de Genève Musicians and dancers of the Paris Opera (2008), a lunar Pierrot accompanied by a dancer and a guitarist (2011) ...

During two seasons (2009-2010 and 2010-2011), he is an associate artist at La Comète, a national stage in Châlons-en-Champagne (France) and performs on tour with a group of dancers.

For the Capitole Ballet (Toulouse, France), which he directs since August 1, 2012, he creates "Liens de table" and "À nos Amours" (2010), "La Reine morte" (2011), "Étranges Voisins" (2012), "Entrelacs", "The Corsair", "Beauty and the Beast" (2013), "Bach-Suite III" (2014), "Giselle" (2015) and "Mur-Mur" (2016).

Throughout the seasons, Kader Belarbi allows the dancers to seize the diversity of choreographic styles in order to nourish their dance.

He is an Officer of Arts and Letters (2006), Knight of the Legion of Honor (2008) and an Officer in the National Order of Merit (2016).

Ballet du Capitole de Toulouse

Artistic direction: Kader Belarbi

For over two centuries, the Ballet du Capitole has been dedicated to the lyric arts: it dances the operatic dance at the Théâtre du Capitole. It wasn’t until 1949 that there would be evenings dedicated solely to dance, at the initiative of Louis Orlandi, Ballet Master and choreographer. The Ballet du Capitole had finally become a ballet company in the fullest sense of the term. It then enjoyed great success with its successive dance directors.
In August 2012, Kader Belarbi, star dancer and choreographer, was offered the direction of dance at the Théâtre du Capitole. A new page was then turned for the Ballet du Capitole. Its new director and creator was attached to the tradition of the great classical and neo-classical repertoire, but still opened the Ballet to the diversity of aesthetics and gave contemporary creation a central role.
Kader Belarbi’s artistic project and ambition are to give the Ballet du Capitole a broad classical repertoire and to open the company up by diversifying its repertoires, as well as by encouraging the expansion of its audience, developing a regional presence and expanding internationally.
Tradition and modernity are at the heart of the Ballet du Capitole. With 35 dancers from 14 different countries, it offers, season to season, dynamic ballet in harmony with its time, open to all.
