3 in Passacaglia
Following the huge public success of “Mayday…”, Yasuyuki Endo, dance soloist and assistant to Frédéric Flamand, has created a trio on pointes to Halvorsen's Passacaglia based on a theme of Handel, revisiting the classical and neoclassical language in his own way.
"The trio “3 in Passacaglia”, by and with Yasuyuki Endo, (…) is a sheer wonder, a jewel of technical precision, rigour and emotion. The piece alternates between duets and a trio to the rhythm of the passacaille and the sarabande with variations in G minor by Halvorsen based on Handel. Contact is light, rapid, refined and carried along. A work highlighting the elegance and technique of pointes by the very graceful Ji-Young Lee before
coming to an end to thunderous applause." Didier Philispart, FRÉQUENCE SUD

Western classical dance enters the modernity of the 20th century: The Ballets russes and the Ballets suédois
If the 19th century is that of romanticism, the entry into the new century is synonymous of modernity! It was a few decades later that it would be assigned, a posteriori, the name of “neo-classical”.
The committed artist
In all the arts and here especially in dance, the artist sometimes creates to defend a cause, to denounce a fact, to disturb, to shock. Here is a panorama of some "committed" choreographic creations.
CHRISTIAN & FRANÇOIS BEN AÏM – VITAL MOMENTUM
[1970-2018] Neoclassical developments: They spread worldwide, as well as having multiple repertoires and dialogues with contemporary dance.
In the 1970s, artists’ drive towards a new classic had been ongoing for more than a half century and several generations had already formed since the Russian Ballets. As the years went by, everyone defended or defends classical dance as innovative, unique, connected to the other arts and the preoccupations of its time.
