Simple Relationships - Sweet Delicacies
"I believe you have also observed that physical pleasure, which is really the main attraction between the two sexes, is still not enough to keep a man and a woman together. It is true, however, it is preceded by desire, which turns them to face each other, but it is immediately followed by a surfeit, and they are quick to turn their backs on each other." – Choderlos de Laclos: Dangerous Liaisons
The sublime beauty of Mozart’s music has such an immense inspirational power that is impossible to resist. Enchanted by his divine music I instinctively feel like dancing. I hear the music of the spheres, the gates of another world are opening. His tunes remind me of the playfulness of the Rococo world, the complicated relationships of men and women. I can’t help imagining a French boudoir in the 18th century... In this ballet we shall evoke the secret world of an imaginary Rococo castle with a lot of humour and style. Love, jelousy, curiosity and conspiracy, decent and naughty thoughts, couples, triangles, dreams and awakenings, beautiful and delicate moments will all be involved to create a most entertaining dance performance.
