Nacho Duato's White Darkness and Joseph Hernandez's The Lavender Follies, music by Karl Jenkins and Johannes Till Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo

About

The Montecarlo Ballets presents a two-part program marked by an unprecedented juxtaposition of human tragedy, dance, and theater. With White Darkness, the choreographer Nacho Duato intensely reflects about drug addiction, a situation he experienced up close with the premature death of sister, to whom the work is dedicated. The Lavender Follies—“a love letter to performance” as described by its creator Joseph Hernandez—fuses dance genres as diverse as Broadway, cabaret, musical, classical ballet, and even martial arts in an extraordinarily innovating staging.
