Léo Walk’s “Maison d’en Face”

May 5, 2023

French dancer and choreographer Léo Walk blends elements of contemporary dance and breaking in “Maison d’en Face,” a film featuring La Marche Bleue, the company he formed in 2018. Filmed by Angelo Marques in a modernist 1960s house located in the mountains of the French Riviera, the six dancers rhythmically bob their heads and isolate their hips as they groove to Flavien Berger’s remix of “Les Contremplations” by Mansfield.TYA. Walk’s choreography in “Maison d’en Face” explores the contrasting experiences of chaos and intimacy and the highs and lows people face in close relationships with others.
