KAORI ITO, AIRELLE BESSON, THÉO CECCALDI
ONE-OF-A-KIND MEETING BETWEEN DANCE & MUSIC

The festival has been harbouring dance and jazz projects for a while. So we very naturally turned to the Japanese dancer and choreographer Kaori Ito to launch this new artistic project with us. Ito has performed around the world, collaborating with the greatest choreographers of her generation (Philippe Decouflé, Angelin Preljocaj, James Thiérée…). Awarded the 2015 Choreography New Talent prize by the French society SACD and honoured with The Ordre des Arts et des Lettres for her contribution to the arts, the dancer went on to direct her own artistic residency in Paris. Hosting many tremendously talented improv musicians from January 2017 to February 2019, this was a place where the connection between dance and jazz was beautified.
From early on, Kaori Ito revelled in connecting with the audience by thrill-seeking improvisations, where everything is performed on the spur of the moment.
“I truly enjoy this art form a lot, as it gives me great freedom. I especially like working with musicians who can support me and share ideas”. For this edition of the festival, the dancer has created a whole new connection between dance and jazz, working alongside the everethereal trumpet player Airelle Besson and the spirited violinist Théo Ceccaldi. Three fantastic artists coming together for this exclusive magical evening.
