L’Ombres Eskimo: also known La BayadĂ¨re du Nord
It’s a mystery where this was filmed but I couldn’t resist posting.
The video mentions Magadan Ballet: La BayadĂ¨re du Nord, but as Magadan is a port town in Russia with a sub arctic climate and a population of fewer than 100,000 people, I don’t think there’s a ballet company there!
Maybe the choreographer, Fernando Magadan created the idea of bears as Shades.
Since I first posted, I’ve discovered this is an excerpt from Le Sang des etoiles, performed by the Malandain Ballet of Biarritz. Go their website to see other excerpts from the ballet – not as funny as this one though!
