‘A ballet’ is the first song from Sébastien Tellier from his album ‘The Adventure’ in 2014.
The clip by Valentine Reinhardt is “a dreamlike vision of family life. Far from the glitz, Sébastien goes on with household chores to the point of having hallucinations. Reduced to a miniature man in his own house, he navigates and wanders through the rooms, both frightened and amazed by his daily universe. Sébastien the artist, cohabits with Sébastien the fairy of the house. “
Sebastien Tellier adds: “It’s a journey to the limits of my intimacy. Lost between the infinitely small and the infinitely large. Of course, as always, I try to run away from my responsibilities, but today they are catching up with me. The household chores and the mental load take me to dance their perpetual ballet. And little by little I let myself go to pleasure. And finally I wonder, maybe the key to happiness is there, hidden under a basket of dirty laundry. “
