United Dance Company is an international ballet troupe led for fifteen years by Alexandre Hoffmann. Under the auspices of UNESCO , a dozen of very high level dancers come together for a common artistic project, for ten events. Between theatre, contemporary or classic dance and original creations, immerse yourselves in this creative and poetic “kaleidoscope”, which reflects the particular language of the world of dance. Learn the steps to creating a ballet: Costumes, rehearsals, troupe life, behind the scenes of a show, but also places steeped in history and magic such as the magnificent Theatre of Augsburg. These images invite you to embark on a unique journey in the privacy of the Company through Austria and Germany. "We try to achieve this harmony, this moment where everything comes together... Then comes the emotion which you always want to feel..." Sergei Upkin, the ballet master.

In the workshop of jewelry creator Gilles Jonemann, we discover a multitude of tools and machines, natural and synthetic materials. Since 2006 Gilles Jonemann has been working for Hermès on the development of the “Petit h” collection. Gilles Jonemann believes a jewel cannot exist without its environment: the body. Jewels are alive because they are worn. He began his career in the 1970s with Morabito, then in the 1980s he made more than 800 unique pieces for Per Spook. He also carries out educational missions in Switzerland, Mali, Madagascar and has for 20 years trained many creators. In 2003 the Ministry of Culture awarded him the title of Master of Art. His gallery Naïla de Monbrison in Paris tells us that “it is for poetry that women buy Gilles’s jewelry: they are made to convey a story - a nice story”. The documentary was screened in 2010 at the 17th meetings of Cinema de Cabrières in Avignon.
