In 2023, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels is presenting a specific program Ballet National de Marseille – (LA)HORDE as part of the Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels Festival in New York.
(LA)HORDE leads the Ballet national de Marseille through varied narration, and redesigns the scope of a seamless dance, from the most structured to the most passionate performance. Over the course of the same evening, the dancers will present a range of performances, from the structured choreography of Lucinda Childs, to the trailblazing style of Lasseindra Ninja, a queer icon in the voguing community. In the (LA)HORDE universe, sensuality and diffracted virtual movement will come face to face with choreographic composition.
“For us, designing a program is like curating a group exhibition. We like to think that through these performances, our audience can create a story in their minds, and in the same evening, they can witness the dancers transform as they navigate through each performance,” explain Marine Brutti, Jonathan Debrouwer and Arthur Harel from (LA)HORDE.
