4 Tendances, Ballet de l’Opera Nationale de Bordeaux, Hong Kong, June 9, 2012

I was happy on Saturday. I went to see the contemporary program by the Ballet de l’Opera Nationale de Bordeaux, 4 Tendances, and in my layman’s eyes, it turned out to be much better than the classical one. I still spotted some mistakes, but then, I guess you always do, and I was fascinated by the depth and emotionality conveyed in the dances.

My favourite piece was the last one, Petite Mort, a choreography by Jiri Kylian. I loved the music, the costumes, and the choreography. Everything fit together wonderfully in my eyes.

Here is a video on youtube by another company, the Netherlands Dance Theatre.
