La Seine Musicale welcomes the 13th edition of Les Etés de la Danse
La Seine Musicale welcomes for the first time the festival of Les Étés de la Danse, which usually takes place in the Théâtre du Châtelet, currently closed for maintenance. Created in July, 2005, it became the unmissable event of summer, a time where there aren’t many choreographic productions. Starting today and until July 22nd, 2017, the distinguished contemporary dance company Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will offer a series of 20 representations, among which 15 will be presented in the evening of the opening, on July 4th, 2017.
Among the representations planned for this 13th edition, five will be held for the first time in Paris. Among them, the show "Ella" directed by the choreographer Robert Battle. Originally created for a single dancer, it was revisited by Battle who transformed it into a duo, to celebrate the centenary of Ella Fitzgerald. On a background of live music of the singer, "Air Mail Special", the dancers combine sensual movements with a brilliant technique. These unseen interpretations are available at the stunning La Seine Musicale, near the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.
Festival “Les Étés de la Danse”, from July 4th to July 22nd, 2017.
Representations at 3p.m. or 8:30p.m., according to the dates.
Opening night, on Tuesday 4th of July, 2017, at 8:30p.m.
€72 per program, per person.
