FOR THE OPÉRA DE PARIS

Finishing touches are applied to Karl Lagerfeld’s costumes ahead of the Opening Gala at the start of Opéra de Paris’ new dance season. For tonight’s performance, he created the costumes for a B/olero section of Ohad Naharin’s Decadance ballet: "Ravel’s ‘Bolero’ has always been one of my most favorite pieces of music in the world. It was the first classical record I bought when I was 16 years old."

PODCAST WITH OHAD NAHARIN

The Israeli choreographer, resident of the Tel Aviv-based Batsheva Dance Company, presents Decadance at the Opéra de Paris. A modular play based on sections from his unfinished works, transforms and adapts through a selection of pieces, variations and transitions. In an interview with Anne Berest, he addresses the issue of freedom through the understanding of rules and knowledge. He talks about his vision of movement and his dance techniques, such as the ‘Gaga’ method, which consists of listening to one's body in an unconventional way to better appreciate movement. To be a good dancer, explains the choreographer, passion, imagination and skills are the three essential qualities needed, complemented by the love of learning and research.
