Modern ‘Transformers’!

PARADE’ is a reworking of the surrealist ballet of the same name, created by Cocteau, Picasso, Satie and Massine for the renowned company Ballets Russes. 

The paradox embedded in this historical avant-garde work inspired choreographer Andrew Graham to make this dance classic his own. In a kind of parallel world, the artists of L’Autre Maison create a new communication technology, where the body, in all its sensitivity and diversity, can be seen as an interface.


Herein lies the magic of ‘PARADE’: by bringing together different vulnerabilities, histories and bodies, a joyful blend of unconventional beauty emerges, where differences are what give the collective its strength. Call it a modern-day version of ‘Transformers’!
