France – Aterballetto in “Golden Days”

Choreography by Johan Inger on music by Tom Waits, Patti Smith and Keith Jarrett in the show on stage in Châteauvallon-Ollioules on 27th and 28th July

«As we grow older we often reflect on our journeys and I, for once, look back on my path with a true smile, when things were bright and carefree. Those were golden days! »
Johan Inger


Golden Days presents two existing works by Johan Inger, Rain Dogs and BLISS, connected by a new short solo creation, Birdland.

Rain Dogs and BLISS are two distinctive works, made years apart and are conceptually and choreographically far from each other, inviting the viewer to dive into two different worlds, though illustrating reoccurring themes in Johan Inger’s work: loss, change and the consequences thereof.

The solo Birdland carries the thread between these two different periods of life, in a grit and a rebellious streak against changes in life.

The concept and what holds the show together is the choice of music: Tom Waits, Patti Smith and Keith Jarrett.
Through their music and their art, these artists have influenced and help change a whole generation and for the brilliant Swedish choreographer Johan Inger they are the key to go back to his 'golden days'.

The show is pervaded by traces of history, by a certain sense of nostalgia, of a place in the past that seemed -looking at it nowadays- simple and free.
