With music by Erik Satie, costumes and set by Pablo Picasso, script by Jean Cocteau, and choreography by Nijinsky’s successor, Léonide Massine, Parade was first performed by the Ballets Russes at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris in 1917. To commemorate the centennial of the premiere, Jérémie Belingard, Shibuya Keiichiro, and Justine Emard have created a fresh interpretation where body, music, and video blend together in harmonious layers.

The Maison de la culture du Japon à Paris (MCJP) represents the Japan Foundation in France. Since its opening in 1997, the MCJP has organized numerous projects to introduce Japanese culture from a variety of perspectives. In an effort to present Japanese performing artists and stage works from ancient to contemporary times in a diverse range of genres, including theatre, dance, and music, the MCJP has actively developed alliances with French facilities and artists. “Parade for the End of the World” is the first work to have been produced as part of a residency program in the MCJP’s hall.
