Currently Natalie and Benjamin have been raising Aleph in L.A., where Benjamin runs the L.A. Dance Project, but the couple are now gearing up for the move to France – sometime in the next year. Benjamin’s new position wont’ start until September of 2014 when the outgoing director retires.
Benjamin shared, “I’m not entirely a foreigner. I did grow up in France, and even though I didn’t go to the school or dance with the Paris Opera Ballet, I absorbed similar ideas in my training. I understand the scale of a big company. I danced for one for almost 20 years. I think it’s an asset that I have absorbed other traditions and had other experiences in the U.S., which I can bring to the dancers here (in Paris). But of course I have a lot to learn about this company and its very remarkable and specific qualities.”
