Maguy Marin Cendrillon
After triumphing in Tokyo, Moscow or Los Angeles, Cendrillon comes back to France more than 25 years after its first production.
A key artist in France’s dance new wave, Maguy Marin mixes dance, music, fiction and a taste for the grotesque to revisit this classic of ballet dancing. In her modern-day version of the fairy tale, Cinderella and her kin are depicted as human-sized dolls.
