Words no longer heard

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.
