In the form of a duo, this choreography reproduces the atmosphere of Stéphane Mallarmé's poem which inspired the composer Claude Debussy.
The movements are powerful and sensual, even erotic. A dancer embodies a faun in blazing heat, wandering between dreams and memories of love for nymphs, in suspended time. A female dancer represents a nymph evoking the faun's dream, thus arousing the eternal essence of desire, alternating between carnal passion and ideal purity.
Dancing to the magical sound of the flute playing the theme of the faun, the dancers move in a simple modern style up until the last few notes.
