On the occasion of the centenary of the Ballets suédois, the Institut Suédois invites Swedish and French personalities for an online discussion about the influence that this avant-garde company has had on the artistic world.

During their five years of existence between 1920 and 1925, the Ballets suédois helped revolutionize the performing arts by producing works involving all artistic fields. The list of their collaborators within the French and international avant-garde is as long as it is impressive.

But what real impact did the Ballets suédois have on artistic disciplines other than dance, both during their own time, as well as today?

With :

  • Erik Mattsson, commissioner and curator of Dansmuseet, Stockholm ;
  • Nicolas Le Riche, director of the Royal Ballet of the Stockholm Opera ;
  • Carole Boulbès, author and art history researcher ;
  • Nathalie Sergent, Director of Editions and multimedia of the Théâtre des Champs Elysée.
  • Moderator : Anne Edelstam, journalist and writer.

The talk won’t be live broadcast but will be shown in a few days through our digital platforms. And good news: it will be the occasion to discover the beautiful exhibition about the Ballets Suédois at the Dansmuseet in Stockholm, major collaborator of our “Mouvements!” season!
