    Their dream: to become a “danseur étoile” one day. Today, those students we followed in the series, are now approaching their 25th birthday and will enter the prime of their careers.

    Ten years ago, the Paris Ballet Opera School began filming the series "Budding Stars." Five years ago, a second season focused on the future of these young dancers. 
    The third opus continues the story of a group of dancers who grew up together since dance school, singular and representative enough for each spectator to find themselves in the questionings and emotions they go through. Dancers who embody an aspiration that animates all of us throughout our existence: to give meaning to our lives.

    In the Seventies, France discovered a generation of new American choreographers mostly from New York. Among these artists, Lucinda Childs was one of the dominant figures.

    Their style and working methods were to upset the artistic and choreographic scene of the time. A new avant-garde had arrived that closely combined dance, music and graphic art.
    Lucinda Childs first studied contemporary dance with Merce Cunningham. She created the so-called "Judson Church" movement together with other young choreographers such as Yvonne Rainer, Steve Paxton, Trisha Brown, David Gordon and Robert Morris. This movement continued officially until 1968 but still influences choreographic creation now more than ever.
    Lucinda Childs began creating for the stage from 1973. She has received a number of commissions from major ballet companies since 1981. These include the Paris Opéra Ballet, the Pacific Northwest Ballet, the Berlin Opera Ballet, the Rambert Dance Company, Bayerisches Staatsballett, the Ballets of Monte Carlo, the Ballet of the German Opera on the Rhine, and the White Oak Dance Project.
    In 2002, Childs was invited to choreograph Gluck's opera "Orphée et Eurydice" and then Benjamin Britten's "Chalcony" for Baryshnikov. Finally she put "Dance" on again which was originally created in 1979, for the Ballet of the German Opera on the Rhine.
    The documentary explores the exceptional personality of Lucinda Childs and puts her career into perspective with her own comments added on.

    This documentary - the first in French language - to be completely dedicated to Nijinski - proposes to reflect both the bright side of this clausing-star, and the obscure aspect of his madness.

    On the 8th of April 1950, he who the world has named "The God of Dance" died. For six years the star of Nijinski burnt beyond the legend : what do we know of his life, his mysticism, his relations with Diaghilev and Romola (his wife) who were the most fundamental characters in his life ?

    Trained as a dancer, an actress, a photographer and a mime artist, Laura Scozzi now creates performances she herself calls "theatrical dance".
    She founded her own dance company Opinioni in Movimento in 1991, and went on to choreograph several acclaimed creations for it. Coline Serreau and Laurent Pelly chose her to stage several of their recent works, and she has also worked on cinema shorts and feature films.

    For this documentary, we go to Grenoble, Gallotta's home town, where he founded his dance company. In his rehearsal studio, in the outbuilding where he made a film, at the crossroads, on the hills and promontories overlooking the city, in the woods of his childhood, he guides us through his favourite places, talking passionately about his work in careful sentences and voluble, expressive body language. The film cuts back and forth between the interview and the dancers in rehearsal, gradually demonstrating the principles which underpin his work - broken rhythms, minimalist sketched-in movements, sobriety, improvisation, literature and the importance of words, total assimilation of movement into the body and between dancers, desire, play and transmission.
    The pieces illustrated in the film are Mamame and Presque Don Quichotte.

    We invite you behind the closed doors of the famous Opéra Garnier after the 2020 lockdown, when ballet dancers were rehearsing without an audience, until the reopening in June 2021.

    Jewel from the Paris Opera repertoire, La Bayadère is a mega-production with flamboyant sets and costumes that brings together on stage nearly 90 dancers of the company. Considered, along with Swan Lake, as one of Rudolf Nureyev's masterpieces, it is also one of the most technical and difficult ballets ever. An unmatched challenge for the dancers after long weeks of interruption and which testifies to the vital energy of dance.

    Between eclectism and accessibility, this series traces the outline of an original history of dance in the 20th century, striving to show how it is rooted in society.

    A rapid, dazzling 3-part panorama centred on nudity, atypical bodies and feet.
     
    Then 3 documentaries explore the major figures of group dance, duet and solo.
     
    Examining these figures takes us to the very heart of the practice of dance - the multiple forms of dance – reflecting on their techniques, sensuality, discipline, body language, physical characteristics, reasoning and lineage. The collection follows the creative process of solo, duet and group choreography, and in doing so, sheds light on the elements that have forged their history.
