Another Place by Mats Ek

Director: Tommy Pascal
Genre: Documentary, Live Show


Echoing the mythical duet of Ana Laguna and Mikhail Baryshnikov in Place performed at the Stockholm Drama Theatre in 2009, Mats Ek composed Another Place at the Paris Opera ten years later.

A couple gravitates around a simple table and a carpet. Love, its impulses, its exhaustion, time, wear and tear, the attempt of a new approach between a man and a woman, their anguish, vulnerability, madness…, everything is played out carnally, straightforwardly, with humor and harshness in the immensity of a bare and entirely uncluttered stage, on the uninterrupted thread of Franz Liszt’s Sonata in B minor, written in one piece. A dialogue of couple only the Swedish choreographer knows how to portray.

During the performances at the Opéra Garnier, Mats Ek’s Pas de Deux will be preceded by his ballet Carmen, and followed by Bolero, a free and poetic creation based on Maurice Ravel’s iconic piece.
This duet will be danced by the stars Ludmila Pagliero and Stéphane Bullion.
Stéphane Bullion will bid farewell to the Paris Opera Ballet on June 4 with this duet.
