With Benjamin Pech, Paris National Opera soloist, the South-African choreographer tackles Louis XIV figure.
Robyn Orlin versus Louis XIV. In this solo, performed by Paris National Opera soloist Benjamin Pech - accompanied by a harpsichordist - the match will be a tough one. Between the French sovereign - who was an excellent dancer himself and who promulgated this art as a weapon to the glory of the establishment power - and the scathing South-African choreographer, the encounter might turn into a pitched battle.
