Magma by Marie-Agnès Gillot, Andrés Marín and Christian Rizzo

She, Marie-Agnès Gillot, is the most unclassifiable star of her generation. His hieratic lines and his presence marked the repertoire of the Paris Opera Ballet. He, Andrés Marín, is one of the big names in contemporary flamenco. These two flamboyant personalities have chosen to meet through a unique creation, at the crossroads of their worlds. Those of Marie-Agnès Gillot range from classical dance to Pina Bausch and Les Enfoirés, while Andrés Marín has moved away from traditional flamenco by collaborating, in particular, with hip hop dance. A third voice, that of Christian Rizzo, will be added to this duo: "They share a very strong animality, but the shadow of this animality must be even more disturbing", explains the choreographer. The result may well spark.
