My neighbor, Jeanne Brabants, who sadly died last year, was the founder of this company and put Ballet on the map in Belgium. As an natural born educator, she founded the Ballet Instituut and has professionalized this art form in my country.
I was lucky enough to spend a few hours watching Sidi Larbi work with his dancers while creating their piece PUZ/ZLE for the festival D’Avignon in 2012.
Seeing how somebody works with his company, tells a lot about a choreographer and this is a man with vision that knows where he’s going. I can’t wait to see where he will be going with the Ballet of Flanders.
