There's also this short clip, available on youtube for a long time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUaMJ_xGK9oIf anyone wants to see the ballet that inspired P/C's Mozart FD, Opera di Roma has made "Le Parc" from 2016 with guests from Paris Opera Ballet -- Eleonora Abbagnato and Stéphane Bullion -- available on YouTube (but I don't see for how long):

I came here to post about this Guillaume workout. It's really good, and fun trying to go through the moves while watching him!It's actually through IGTV so it won't go away.
This is quite an interesting section of the interview from an ice dance perspective.Têtu: Your programs with your partner, Gabriella Papadakis, often show hints of sensuality. Is it more complicated, when you are attracted to men?
Guillaume: It is a challenge in the sense that it requires a performing skill, a role that is part of the programs. For the longest time, the problem was that I could not endorse my femininity on the ice and be myself. This sport is after all very coded with ‘a man and a woman’. The judges are mostly older and not very progressive. You have to accept that. It is part of the game. But I slowly took the liberty to dance in programs that offered me other roles than the traditional macho one. Because very often the masculine role is that of the frame to showcase the woman. And to showcase her, you have to create a contrast, enhancing the macho side of masculinity. To change that is an uphill battle, and Gabriella was always a great support. We are both longing for freedom. She was as just annoyed as I was by the limitations. We still have programs where we play masculine and feminine roles. It doesn’t bother us, because it is also a performance. But I still want to play other roles than a man’s. For instance, roles that are more fraternal, contemporary, where we are simply two souls, interpreting love, from human being to human being. I managed to free myself of the constraint when I realized that it was just a role: I took the liberty to be myself and embrace my feminine side.
Ignorance is rife in the world. That is a small percent of his followers. I usually don't give who is what any thought. To try to properly explain his world my gay brother brought me to a gay night club in my late teens. It was totally packed and out of all the ppl there there was only a few who I would identify in my brain organization as being gay. I have kept that lesson in my life always.I can't believe there are people that unfollowed him...I mean, were they surprised? I don't get it.
If someone has the skill to translate the letter guillaume wrote in l'équipe that we can read in this twitter link, please do it. This is inspiring and so much well written and may be abble to help other people to feel better . you can feel the simplicity and the raw frankness of it without any complacency.There’s a new article in l’equipe. It’s behind a paywall but someone posted a part of it in Twitter. Looks like a letter written by Guillaume. He has also posted it in his own Instagram but the text is easier to read in Twitter. I love the photo of Guillaume l’equipe has chosen for their cover.
