Le dernier spectacle, in 1998, was supposed to have marked his farewell to the world of dance after just three personal creations. It was meant to have been his last piece, but no such doing. Yet how is one to continue, when one has chosen pulling out, programmatically speaking, as the theme of the show, which ended up leaving the choreography entirely up to the spectator?
