Thirty dancers from hip-hop, break, vogue, and other non-traditional genres descend on Paris’s legendary Opéra Bastille to reinvent Jean-Philippe Rameau’s baroque masterpiece Les Indes galantes. Intense, mesmerising, energetic and a powerful ode to life and art – this is an inspiring documentary, unmissable.
