Description This program travels from the meditative work of Saburo Teshigawara in Para-Dice, through baroque virtuosity set to Bach’s soaring music in Andonis Foniadakis’ Selon Désir, to the warmth and humour of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s cross-cultural Loin. Directed by Philippe Cohen, the Geneva Ballet is known for its exciting artistic collaborations begun in the 1970s by George Balanchine. Dedicated to the performance of great contemporary works ever since, it is known as ‘a home ofessential creative energy’.
