“In the Flood myth common to various different cultural traditions, the jubilant figure of Noah embodies a kind of breakthrough in humanity’s history. In summing up the past and preparing us for the future, Noah symbolises the coming of a new and better world. This second Creation erases the first, which has been wrought by the machinations of evil and humanity’s degeneration. This is a new Adam, drawn from water rather than the earth, who, in Genesis, acts first as a mortal and then a symbol of life because, upon leaving the womb and cradle that is the Ark, Noah and his offspring will repopulate the world.“
Thierry Malandain

Press talks about it

“Malandain-style dance definitely never ceases to amaze and charm us […] In one fell swoop, subtle references take the audience to a bygone faraway place; something fresh, pervasive, and merry that electrifies this brilliant ballet.”
