About Switch and Woman in a Room:
Switch, by Maillot, who is choreographer-director of Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo, is a pas de trios set to music by the Academy Award®-nominated and Grammy® Award-winning composer Danny Elfman. Vishneva calls Switch “a story about a woman and her alter ego and her relationship with men.” It also features dancers Bernice Coppieters and Gaëtan Morlotti. Coppieters and Morlotti are stars of Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo. Coppieters was seen by Center audiences in 2009’s Tour de Forceand Morlotti danced here in Cinderella when the Center presented Les Ballets in 2012.
Woman in a Room is a solo piece created for Vishneva by Carolyn Carlson, director of National Centre for Contemporary Choreography in Roubaix and of the Atelier de Paris at La Cartoucherie de Vincennes in Paris. Inspired by the films of Andrei Tarkovsky, Woman in a Room is an evocative work that follows one woman’s journey in life, filled with joys, bitterness and contemplation. The music featured is by Italian post-minimalist composer and cellist Giovanni Sollima with a finale piece by René Aubry. “I’ve always thought of Carolyn Carlson as a choreographer who understands a woman’s soul and could make a story that would suit me and that we could collaborate on,” says Vishneva.
