Cela nous concerne tous
(This concerns all of us)

Cela nous concerne tous (This concerns all of us) is a commission I made in the fall of 2017 for Ballet de Lorraine, in Nancy, France. Premiering during the 50th anniversary season of the Ballet de Lorraine, this piece takes its inspiration (and title) from the May 1968 social and political movements in France. This new piece presents an unruly choreography and a restless and ecstatic liveness to see if we can still access feeling through the unusual phenomenon of coming together in a theater.
