Scarlet Yu, Salka Ardal-Rosengren, Eleanor Bauer and Alexandre Achour created together with Xavier Le Roy and Peter Böhm a new version of Le scare du printemps (2007).

This version puts at work questions related to the transmission / interpretation / translation of a pre-existing work. The performers have different personalities that will multiply the perspectives by adding a level of interpretation to the pre-existing material of the choreography made in 2007, which is itself an interpretation: of the music composed in 1913 by Igor Stravinsky, of " the argument" written in 1911 by Nicola Roerich, from the recording of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra made in 2004, recomposed for the situation by Peter Böhm in 2007, but also, of the way of hearing, listening and distributing the modes of address to the spectators that are at the base of this situation. On the other hand, this version seeks to diffract the role of the conductor by sharing it among several to create relays, overlays, juxtapositions and produce a complex game of subjectivities to disturb the order of established roles.
