Created in 2014 for Ballet BC in Canada, Twenty Eight Thousand Waves is based on the fact that an oil tanker at sea is hit by the waves on average twenty-eight thousand times a day. This extreme resistance inspired a vision of the fine line between life and death, and the human instinct to survive.

“Choreographically, Twenty Eight Thousand Waves est une œuvre complexe. is a complex work. Both artistic and technical parts go hand in hand at every moment, offering the dancer the opportunity to surpass himself and find new challenges in his artistic discipline.“
