1. My work is an ecological metaphor.
    My settings are my theatre stage where I perform. It is a quest for complete relationships of our senses, for a « total art », multi-media and multi-sensorial, a true experience, a total share with my audience whom I invite to feel this other « reality » again, the invisible reality.

  2. Choreographer Damien Jalet traverses the Louvre as if lost in an enchanted forest. Dancers and musicians become smugglers, middlemen wandering between the world of works of art and the world of nocturnal visitors. Traversed by the magnetism and the mythology of sculptures, they metamorphose and invite the spectators to a haunting and visceral ritual where roles of observing and being observed, of living and being petrified are reversed.
    Damien Jalet is surrounded by 11 dancers of the Eastman company (Aimilios Arapoglou, Meytal Blanaru, Navala ‘Niku’ Chaudhari, Vittoria De Ferrari Sapetto, Leif Federico Firnhaber, Damien Fournier, Clara Furey, Alexandra Gilbert, Kazutomi ‘Tsuki’ Kozuki, , Damien Jalet) and students from the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp; musicians Winter Family, Sofyann ben Youssef , Mahabub and Sattar Khan , Patrizia Bovi, Bernhard Willhelm, Rein Vollenga, Undercover and Alexandra Mein, collaborated for the costume desig and the participation of make up artist Jean Biche
    Lights from Willy Cessa.
    Les Médusés were presented during three nocturnes in february 2013 in the Louvre museum in Paris. It consists of 9 short pieces that are being performed continuously during two hours.

    produced by Eastman , Le louvre

  5. Jamaican-born choreographer Garth Fagan – a Tony Award winner for The Lion King – expertly distills the dance traditions of his heritage to display movement in its purest form. In this ensemble work, undulating torsos move independently of gyrating hips, and arms and legs cut through space with an arresting display of strength. Tableau-like moments of stillness are juxtaposed against fiery solos. The music further echoes the West Indian tradition with a rhythmic, uplifting score composed by Trinidadian Grammy winner Ralph McDonald.
