June 27th 2001: Young Choreographers

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.

Pure Seduction! // LE SPECTRE DE LA ROSE

Yes, today we have some more photos of Le Spectre de la Rose in our rehearsal diary, even though there is no male “spirit of the rose” to be seen. In Marco Goecke’s Spectre he has a strong female counterpart – here you can see our Demi Soloist Agnes Su rehearsing for this role:

Pure Seduction! // FAUN

By the way: Have we introduced you to our guest ballet mistress yet? Her name is Daisy Philips and she teaches Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Faun to our dancers. Together with James O’Hara she is the original cast of Faun. And we’re very happy to have her here!

Pure Seduction! // DARK GLOW

Only one more week until the premiere! By now we have stage rehearsals almost every day, today for the first time with the orchestra. After the stage rehearsals follow the corrections in the studio. There are still some things to do, but we’re in a good mood, as you can see :)

Pure Seduction! // LE SPECTRE DE LA ROSE

How do dancers actually learn a new choreography? A look into the studio explains it better: Our ballet master Rolando D’Alesio works with the dancers on Marco Goecke’s Le Spectre de la Rose – with videos, his notes – and of course, by showing the steps :) Enjoy today’s rehearsal photos …
