Created in 2001, The Show Must Go On, is one of Jerôme Bel's most emblematic dance pieces. It explores the relationship between music and art, pushing and exploring the boundaries between the coloquial and the refined, and constantly challenging the viewer. On an unadorned stage a DJ selects records and a mixture of professional dancers and people with no dance experience must follow instructions. The piece formed part of the the repertoire of the Hamburg-based Deutsches Schauspielhaus between 2000 and 2005 and of the Ballet of the Opera of Lyon between 2007 and 2014. In this the professionals are local dancers.
