Déesses et Démones – a meeting between two dance stars for a “mythological” creation. As in the days of the Greek gods, they come together and confront each other, transform themselves into she-demons or benevolent deities in order to change the destiny of mortals and spread power, joy and energy all around them. Are these two female dancers two sides of the same coin? They control heat and cold and represent chaos and harmony. These two forces of nature, who are virtuosic and sensitive, goddesses and she-demons, are similar yet dissimilar.

For Blanca Li, a choreographer who defies definition, and Maria Alexandrova, a principal dancer at the Bolchoï Ballet, it offers an opportunity to explore their secret personalities together. Despite their different career paths, they come together as twins in harmony and in violence alike. They assert their differences and similarities. They are simultaneously different and equal and conjure up the power of mythological and totemic figures with highly lyrical and strong gestures.
