France – Paris

The dancer and choreographer continues his rise through his protean universe, full of flights of fancy and solar vibes. His instinctive, organic, and poetic vision, inspired by hip-hop and contemporary, has not failed to conquer the milieu, the public, and the brands. Today, Léo Walk returns to the Théâtre du Châtelet, two years after Première Ride, and invites us into his house across the street. Through this new creation, he tells us in a more personal way about the bonds forged within his troupe, the Marche bleue, which he founded in 2018.

A visual journey nourished by several artistic inspirations and steps of different styles. The nine performers, coming from all horizons, evolve in a vacuum between contemporary, classical, break, and electro. The scenography draws an interior space, at the same time minimalist, timeless, and familiar. On the music of Flavien Berger, the artist draws from the experience of each dancer to better plunge us in this poetic exploration of the feelings in love and friendship, through situations of everyday life. “It’s the desire to capture the era in which we live, its essence, its characteristics,” says Leo Walk. “To draw moments of life, to bring the public’s attention to these details of everyday life that we no longer notice, to the beauty and violence of the most common situations, to the poetry and sensitivity of intimacy.”
