By Frédéric Flamand (Belgium) and Ai Weiwei (China)

In an extraordinary dance collaboration, Belgian choreographer Frédéric Flamand and Chinese visual artist Ai Weiwei have created a baroque, ever-changing world that pushes the limits of human movement.

Inspired by Italo Calvino’s novel, The Baron In the Trees, this exploration of changes in human perception reveals the ambiguity of our relationship with truth and lies, and how technology has changed our relationships with people and the places we live.

Ballet National de Marseille has earned an enviable international reputation for visionary work that crosses techniques and disciplines. In The Truth 25 Times A Second, classical ballet and contemporary dance are fused with modern art and architecture to create a visually stunning work for the here and now.

Please note latecomers will not be admitted.

"This ballet of flesh and metal applies Flamand’s winning recipe… captivating, then, right until the hero’s final flight … a suspended moment, a trance, to the very last second." - La Marseillaise
