What remains engraved on the memory of an audience long after the spectacle they saw one evening has gone? Choreographer Olga de Soto went off in search of members of the audience in the Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris on 25 June 1946 for a mythical ballet based on a poem by Jean Cocteau. As she interviewed them, their memories and emotions resurfaced, once more bringing the spectacle to life, illuminated by recollections that had until now been buried in darkness. The choreographer has composed a subjective impression from their recollections and emotions, projecting it onto screens on a theatre stage - its original setting. Claire Diez
