In 2022, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels is supporting (LA)HORDE and Ballet National de Marseille in the production of We should have never walked on the Moon.
(LA)HORDE with the Ballet National de Marseille visits the Cannes Film Festival with We Should Have Never Walked on the Moon, a novel performative exhibition. With this new piece, (LA)HORDE explores the multifaceted future of dance in its relationship with cinema, questioning the place of the body and movement in contemporary narratives, based on the physicality at work in action films and musicals. The exhibition space becomes the site of a new experience, where so many supercharged bodies bustle about, singing and dancing. In reference to the famous Gene Kelly phrase, We Should Have Never Walked on the Moon explores the political and aesthetic scope of technical progress within its complex relationship to reality.
Choreography, installations, and performances will provide the immersive narrative of this exhibition, placing everyone at the border between reality and imagination, inviting them to face multiple realities.
