Échappés In The Streets by Valérie MALAVERGNE and Ursula BENSIMON Preface by Patrick DUPOND
This book is the result of both the author's original idea to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the City Ballet of San Diego (USA), and her encounter with a talented photographer. "Echappés In The Streets" invites the reader backstage and into the streets of San Diego. As well as evoking the City Ballet's origins and everyday life, the author describes and "stages" the major classical and modern ballets of the company's repertoire. She also includes some touching, sometimes even funny, stories. Through Ursula Bensimon's photographs, "Echappés In The Streets" allows the novice to discover this dreamlike world, and offers the insider a strikingly new perspective. Most of the images come from specific photoshoots that bring Carmen, Romeo and Juliet, Swan Lake and even The Nutcracker to life in locations such as the Air and Space Museum, the San Diego Safari Park, and the beach. As suggested by its title, "Echappés In The Streets" is a bilingual French/English book, inviting the reader to follow the City Ballet's dancers into the streets of an amazing city that fills visitors with wonder.
