Duration
2 hours

In 2024, Dance Reflection by Van Cleef & Arpels continues to pursue its commitment to transmission and education and is organizing in collaboration with Kyoto Experiment a workshop led by dancers of the Ballet national de Marseille as part of the Dance Reflection by Van Cleef & Arpels Festival in Japan.

Discover the aesthetics of (LA)HORDE’s creations and gain understanding of their choreographic work. This workshop will focus on the transmission of the grand finale of the piece Room With a View created in 2020 by Rone and (LA)HORDE with the Ballet national de Marseille. The choreography combines with Rone’s music to tell the story of the legitimate anger of younger generations attempting to unite in festive and combative communities, overwhelmed by the infinite violence of the world, which they replay in their flesh as if to exorcise it.

Portrait of Rone

Rone

It took less than a decade for Rone to establish himself as one of the main artists of the French electronic scene. With four studio albums on the Parisian label InFiné and numerous collaborations (Alain Damasio, Étienne Daho, Jean-Michel Jarre, Michel Gondry, François Atlas, The National), Erwan Castex, aka Rone, has always sought to break out of his comfort zone by crossing the boundaries of electronic music.

In early 2017, his live at the Philharmonie de Paris made him win the Indés prize in the Live category. At the end of 2018, he offers a rereading of works by composer Benjamin Britten, accompanied on stage by the Maîtrise de Radio France. Rone then presents Motion, a 12-minute electro-classical piece, in collaboration with the orchestra Les Siècles, conducted by François-Xavier Roth.

2020 marks a new turning point in the artist’s career, beginning with Room With a View, a ten-day carte blanche creation at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris with (LA)HORDE and the Ballet national de Marseille.

After winning the César for best original music for Frédéric Farrucci’s La Nuit venue in March 2020, Rone won the Cannes Soundtrack award for Les Olympiades directed by Jacques Audiard.
