    Calesta "Callie" Day

Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman’s first ballet for the dancers of the Paris Opera, Play, had its world premiere at the Palais Garnier in December 2017. The choreographer brings the performers onto a vast playground where emotions and imagination are given free rein. To an original score by Mikael Karlsson the dancers’ bodies metamorphose into stag-like silhouettes or dive into a field of coloured balls. A performance replete with communicative energy, Play combines dance, theatre, music and song in a profound, festive and at times farcical spirit that is rich with humour.
