Le Songe

J-Ch. Maillot

Le Songe can be considered as a microcosm of Jean-Christophe Maillot's work. All of the themes he developed throughout his career are condensed into this one piece. In the narrative ballets that preceded Le Songe, Jean-Christophe Maillot often focussed on binary oppositions and full-frontal shock factors to compare and contrast truths. Le Songe represents a shift. Jean-Christophe Maillot draws on three different worlds, the worlds of the Athenians, the Fairies and the Artisans. A ternary universe slowly forms, in which the shades of grey that exist between black and white emerge, and in which truth isn't always as it seems.
