Hola Everbody,

All is well here in San Sebastián where I am presenting a Gala called “Donostia Bihotzean” (San Sebastián in my heart). We are ready for our first show tonight and I am very excited to share the stage with fellow Stuttgart dancers Friedeman Vogel and Martí Fernández Paixà and other colleagues Marijn Rademaker, Daniel Camargo, Xander Parish, Aya Okumura, Ekaterina Osmolkina, and Timothy van Poucke.

I’ll be dancing Onegin, Legende and Aus Holbergs Zeit by John Cranko, as well as an excerpt from Hans van Manen’s Frank Bridge Variations and Lightness in Spirit by Katarzyna Kozielska. I’ll also be premiering a new creation by Fabio Adorisio called Egurra!

I want to thank the city of San Sebastián for the amazing warm welcome given to me yesterday at the city hall.

Missing as always my wonderful audience in Stuttgart. See you on Monday!

Kisses,

Alicia Amatriain

Hope this email finds you great! I’m very happy to be in Mexico City right now receiving a very important award named Premio Nacional de la Juventud. This is the maximum recognition that our President Enrique Peña Nieto together with the Federal Government from my country gives to the youth in different distinctions. I was awarded in the distinction Artistic Expression and Popular Arts“.

I’m very grateful to be living this experience and at the same time I’m very looking forward to be back in Stuttgart soon and dance in the next Night Pieces evening!

Much love from Mexico

Rocio

Bangkok Tour // October 2017 (Day 9)

We are so happy…we had a fantastic first performance in Bangkok and we celebrated our Soloist Adhonay Soares da Silva’s debut as Petrucchio in The Taming of the Shrew. Instead of trying to put it in a nutshell, we let the photos of our photographer and Principal Dancer Roman Novitzky speak for themselves…

Bangkok Tour // October 2017 (Day 7)

After three very successful performances in Singapore, the company travels on to Bangkok, one of the most exciting cities in the world. At the moment however, the mood is somewhat subdued as the Thai people prepare for the cremation and state burial of their beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The official ceremony will take place on October 26th. Many people are wearing black and all billboards are covered with images of the deceased king with messages of love and respect for this monarch who reigned for an unprecedented 70 years. Nonetheless the company is very happy to be here performing two performances of John Cranko’s The Taming of the Shrew as part of  the 19th International Festival of Dance and Music.
