“What are, and where are Les Sylphides today?”

The original ballet Les Sylphides, made by the russian choreographer Fokine, is considered the first ballet story without plot or argument, which means, is the first abstract ballet and the start of what is contemporary dance.

From the aesthetic essence of Fokine’s ballet, this reinterpretation of Les Sylphides seeks to build a more vital representation, which is closer to our experience and perception of life, while teaches the public how you can live and feel the dance today by means of a pleasant dose of humor.
