Fifty years after the march to Washington, Martin Luther King's famous speech against racism is revisited by the American choreographer Bruce Taylor. In his ballet "I Have A Dream", he tries to demonstrate the imprint that this historic moment has left on our bodies, thanks to the performance of his contemporary dancers. A historical and moving show, a vibrant tribute to this great humanist, the celebration of the dream and the hope that one day we can all live free, equal and in peace.
