Robyn Orlin

Oh Louis…


Belgian premiere

Piece for 1 dancer and 1 harpsichordist

In her latest solo Robyn Orlin has decided to “tackle” the figure of Louis XIV. Resisting clichés, the South African choreographer gives this paragon of western culture a seriously hard time. The Sun King is not so luminous after all! It is a brilliant demonstration by star dancer Benjamin Pech with Loris Barrucand on the harpsichord.
