From the show
"Hiroshi Sugimoto is a photography phenomenon."
“Sugimoto’s photographic works form part of the most distinguished art collections in his home country, Japan, and internationally.”
“Aurélie Dupont can be seen looking divine against an empty sky, dancing Martha Graham in the film Breathing.”
With the glass roof of his Odawara Art Foundation as the stage, Artistic Director of the Paris Opera Ballet Aurélie Dupont performs the solo Ekstasis, a work choreographed by Martha Graham in 1933 and reimagined by Virginie Mécène.
At daybreak, from the vantage point high above the busy world below, Dupont dances as if floating between sky and sea; the performance evolving as the sun rises and the day emerges.
