Jill Crovisier's BOLERO is a rhythmic and personal journey of a man who slowly finds his inner voice in his own territory.
Compared to the circle of life, the roller skates become a symbol for the fast progress in our world, the uncertainty and instability it brings with it; but also symbolize control and persistence.
The dancer will take you on a powerful ride on Ravel's masterpiece.
BOLERO can also be presented in shared evening programs such as double or triple bills with works by Jill Crovisier or other choreographers.
