Contemporary and impressive performances
Once again, this year, Do Disturb offers a strong programme held by numerous contemporary artists and six great international cultural institutions. Among them, the A4 Arts Foundation of Cape Town, South Africa, the Hayward Gallery of London, United Kingdom, or even the Verbo Performance Art Festival of São Paulo, Brazil. Art aficionados will be able to admire very original performances such as “Rite”, created by Florence Peake. The British choreographer offers a modern reinterpretation of the Russian ballet “Rite of Spring” (1913) of Vaslav Nijinski, executed by dancers performing on a floor of wet clay. The French magician and mime Romain Lalire will present his show “Kumo” (which means “cloud” in Japanese), a graceful and hypnotic weightlessness act inspired by the artist’s eclectic experience. During the festival, enjoy free access to the Palais de Tokyo exhibitions to visit “L’Ennemi de mon ennemi” (“The enemy of my enemy”) by Neil Beloufa, until May 13th, 2018, just a few-minute walk away from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.
