TODAY 19 YEARS AGO, several artists were discovered at the Young Choreographers evening of the Noverre Society. Rolando D’Alesio, today ballet master of the Stuttgart ballet, created Come neve al sole for Bridget Breiner and Friedemann Vogel on June 27th 2001, which was subsequently danced at numerous galas. Among others Alejandro Cerrudo and Peter Quanz contributed further successful pas de deux with Beige and Brown and La route des rencontres. The evening was also made memorable due to Marco Goecke’s Chicks. For the first time, the young man from Wuppertal presented the Stuttgart audience with his unusual aesthetics. He had previously been looking for recognition in vain, but in Stuttgart the former Artistic Director Reid Anderson spotted talent in his feverish dance language. The door to the world of choreography was opened for him and as the company’s resident choreographer he refined his style over the coming years. All three choreographers could launch their careers thanks to the Noverre evening and became sought-after artist in the international dance world.
