A rooftop in Bastille became the stage, and the city of Paris the backdrop for this short film commissioned by perfumers, Amouage. Dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet, amongst them recently nominated ‘étoile’ Laura Hecquet, were directed in an original piece by choreographer Samuel Murez.

The piece is an intimate study of the ‘interlude’ – those off-stage moments when dancers prepare, rehearse and focus. As they find that quiet space within themselves, in which their character resides, before a performance. The piece was scored by British band u.n.k.l.e.
