And the Montpellier Danse festival is back!

True to itself: elitist and exclusive.

This year, don't wait for the slightest foray into mainstream dance.

Jean-Paul Montanari, its director for forty years, returns to his true love, (very) contemporary dance.

On the program, regulars, such as Sharon Eyal and her compatriot Gai Behar, who will resume their creation

The Brutal Journey of the Heart

. A series of pieces that compile the latest effects and fashionable poses, with the aim, it seems, to whisper to the ears of the public that it is at the forefront. We also find the Toulouse choreographer Sylvain Huc, more discreet, whose creations always astonish by their truth, as well as Maud Le Pladec, the director of the National Choreographic Center of Orleans, who imagines his ballets with a mathematical rigor.

Finally, two Mediterranean choreographers will have the honor of opening and closing this festival. First of all, the confidential but eagerly awaited creation of Arkadi Zaides, whose choreographic expression still joins political consciousness. He evokes the difficult census of the thousands of graves of migrants who died crossing the Mediterranean, which he aims, through dance, to bring together in a symbolic place: the

Necropolis

. Macabre and icy ballet which will challenge.

And to finish, the large fresco by Dimitri Papaioannou, created the previous month at the Biennale de la danse in Lyon.

This artist knows how to handle beauty and sensuality while showing himself sometimes a little provocative - and on this question, his

Transverse Orientation is

no exception to the rule.

After the defection of the Batsheva due to Covid, this new play by Dimitri Papaioannou and the creation of Salia Sanou

From a Dream,

helped by the BNP Paribas foundation, will be the only shows planned in the large hall of the Corum.

From June 23 to July 16 (04.67.60.83.60).
