Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève

Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève

Created for the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève, in 2003, the ballet “Words no longer heard” is a work inspired by the theory of two halves as discussed by Plato in The Symposium and set to a drama penned by the famous American psychoanalyst Terrance Brown (1939-2005). Part one is totally masculine and evokes the systematic and anguished search for the other half.  

In part two, the dancers, like white lilies, the symbol of universal creation, provide a pastoral context and strengthen the calming image of the two halves united.
