    • Synopsis
    • Choreographer, Roland Petit is one of the twentieth century's great artists and continues to maintain his artistic energy into the new century. Inspired by both the films of Charlie Chaplin and the man himself (who he knew personally), he created the ballet, "Charlot Danse Avec Nous" (English title, "Chaplin Dances"). Petit had always had his eye on a film presentation of his ballet and he assigned this project to trusted friend, Masayuki Suo, pioneer of the current revival of Japanese cinema. Drawing upon a wealth of world-wide ballet talent, Petit's ballet and Chaplin's films, Suo reinvented the work and has given it a new lease of life.
