Le Parc is one of the most sublime ballets I’ve ever seen. When I attended the 100th Anniversary`s Galina Ulanova Gala last year, this piece was one of the biggest surprises of the night, and was danced by Vladimir Malakhov and Nadja Saidakova.
The piece carries Angelin Preljocaj`s hallmark and his daring sensuality; and I think his geniality is due to his delicate manner with which he deals with love affairs.
When I saw this commercial being circulated on Facebook today, I could help writing this post here.
The shooting took place in a Maroccan desert, where no special effects were used; but rather, the sky being reflected on a 400 square meters mirror, having Benjamin Millepied and Virginie Caussin as protagonists.
The idea of this advertising campaign is to pass on to the public an idea of efficiency and reliability that Air France can bring, through a love story.
See below the commercial making off and a short interview given by Angelin Preljocaj and Benjamin Millepied about the shooting; and at the bottom of this page, please see a video of Isabelle Guérin and Laurent Hilaire who have done the original piece.
