Pierre-Elie de Pibrac: Backstage at L’Opéra de Paris

From September 2013 to July 2014, the photographer Pierre-Elie de Pibrac spent his days with the ballet company of the ‘Opéra National de Paris’, for an entire season, a historical and pivotal one, since it marked the departure of both Nicolas Le Riche  (star ballet dancer) and dance director Brigitte Lefèvre, who passed the reigns to Benjamin Millepied. During these major events, the photographer was able to blend into the background, emerging with three series of photographs.

This abstract pictorial series, Catharsis, is the product of research into the “translation” of the energy of the dancers and its diffusion into the surrounding space. The power that characterizes the ballet is given to the viewer in a new and transcendental form.

The exhibition will be on display at the Galerie Clémentine de la Féronnière through November 23rd, 2014.
