Le bal moderne


Participatory and interactive project!

Since 2003, Jordi L. Vidal has created 3 choreographies for Le Bal Moderne, which they have been presented more than 120 times all over Europe

GOPHER MAMBO XTRA
It takes you on a journey to another planet with supernatural consequences on the way!
A light-hearted exploration of a close encounter
A dance that’s out of this world

SUPER MISSION
Created together with Céline Brynart
Music: Theme from Miss Marple
Super Mission has as source of James Bond films, and the world of secret agents...

BEASTIE ATTRACTION
The choreography transforms the most distinguished examples of seduction of the animal kingdom. Beastie Attraction, when we as animals, we dance for the love.

LE BAL MODERNE’S PRINCIPLE
The audience will be taught 3 dances of approximately 3 minutes each in the course of a Dance. Created especially for the Bal Moderne by a renowned or upcoming choreographer, each dance will be taught during a 45-minute period spent in a relaxed and festive atmosphere, unlike a conventional dance lesson or your average fashionable club.

They were created thanks to Espace Catastrophe, Brussels.

Le bal moderne Press Reviews
A. S. Vers L’Avenir. 30-10-03
“(…) Entertainment, human touch and hilarities prevail when it’s question of put our one’s tongue for his partner, one of the choreographical gesture”

TV Luxembourg intreview in french
http://www.tvlux.be/joomla/index.php/component/content/article/188/9891

L'Avenir Belgium. 29 - 02 - 12
