DIRECTOR OF KIDD PIVOT, THE CANADIAN CRYSTAL PITE
has been supported by the BNP Paribas Foundation since 2018. Propelled into the artistic and media limelight in 2016 thanks to The Season s Canon, produced for the national Paris Opera Ballet, the choreographer was back in 2019 at the Palais Garnier with Body and Soul. This world premiere combines duets and group dances and is backed by the mesmerising voice of the actor Marina Hands, then Chopin s Preludes, and lastly, Teddy Geiger s electro-pop, taking the audience on a musical journey. It was one of the major events in the programme for the 350th anniversary of the Paris Opera Ballet, which is also patronised by the BNP Paribas Foundation. We are very proud that you have chosen to support Crystal Pite s new production, said Dance Director Aurélie Dupont, paying tribute to the trusted partnership between the two organisations.

Everything I do comes from a desire to bring people together, so that they can connect with each other. When I push myself beyond my usual limits, I see it as an opportunity to grow and discover something new. Striving for more is what drives me.
