Malandain ballet Biarritz

Thierry Malandain built his work on Vivaldi's Stabat Mater and Estro Amonico op. 3, an energized and high-vitamined music, consistently seeking the highest point. In this ballet, Thierry Malandain creates desire for elevation, through efforts to reach the peak, in reference to André Lendger words 'It is easier today to climb a 8000 meters-moutain, than to move forward a few centimeters in one's true self'.
