With Alexandre Tharaud at the piano, Yoann Burgeois performs a spectacular gravity defying dance to the tune of Claude Deubssy's Clair de lune.

Dancer Yoann Bourgeois wrote this about Claude Debussy‘s Clair de lune (Moonlight), the music played by pianist Alexandre Tharaud in the video above. The acrobatic piece, where Bourgeois almost suspends gravity between a staircase and trampoline, is a collaboration between the two. It’s based on the choreography in Bourgeois’ La mécanique de l’Histoire (The Mechanics of History) and honors Debussy 100 years after his death.
