American choreographer DD Dorvillier makes Paris her stage, step by step

The Puerto Rican-born, NYC-raised choreographer DD Dorvillier chats to Richelle Harrison Plesse about using Paris as a stage for her work "A Catalogue of Steps". It’s a constantly-evolving collection of hundreds of fragments of her choreographic repertoire created over 14 years between 1990 and 2004. Dorvillier recently performed the work at the Parades for FIAC festival, as part of this year’s International Contemporary Art Fair.

Plus, we take a look at a child prodigy following in the footsteps of Mozart. Alma Deutscher has composed her first, full-scale opera - at the tender age of 11.
