The story of dance in three ballets.

This evening of dance at the Opéra de Lyon provides an overview of contemporary dance in three stages.
It all starts with William Forsythe’s "Second Detail". A very academic contemporary dance, bordering on classical.
Next comes Trisha Brown and her creation "Set and Reset/Reset". Here, dance casts off some of its rigour and becomes more fluid, almost improvised. We talk of "post-modern dance".
Jérôme Bel closes the evening with a choreography which is a sort of evolution, a legacy of the work left off by the two previous artists, these giants of contemporary dance.
