Angels in America

by Cie Philippe Saire

Philippe Saire creates a choreographic treatment of Tony Kushner's play.

Fearful Symmetries

by Cie Ioannis Mandafounis

In this commission for the Geneva Ballet as part of the format «Minimal Maximal», Mandafounis searches for a dialogue between the individual and the collective; how to rediscover intimacy within a group. He achieves this by modelling his dance on additions and subtractions in counterpoint to John Adams’ music.
