 The song “Les Marionnettes” performed by Zbigniew Preisner

It is dauntingly beautiful.

This song was used in the marionettes scene from La double vie de Veronique”.


The Cellist (1909). Amedeo Modigliani (Italian, Expressionism, 1884-1920). Oil on canvas.
Artist Kurt Stoermer admired the painting’s “extremely subtle technique,” which, through an artistic differentiation of colours, allowed the musician to merge into his instrument and showed him in a curious state of reverie. “Later”, Stoermer continued, “I saw in [Modigliani’s] subsequent works that the strongly emotional style of The Cellist represented a stage in his development that he soon left behind him. He hated feelings.”

“In the Middle” perfectly captures the intimate, prickly, ambiguous relationships of dancers who grow up together but must never forget that their friends are also their rivals. When performed by other companies, this wary surveillance, the bravado that masks fear, is often enacted as a vaguely sulky aggressiveness. But when Alice Renavand and Aurélia Bellet eyed each other warily, it was immediately clear what was at stake: center stage.
