What’s been happening in the studio today? See for yourselves: Elisa Badenes and Pablo von Sternenfels are rehearsing Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Faun. And of course every day we’re working on all the other pieces as well … you will see more of that soon :)
Dear Stuttgart Ballet and all of our friends!
After the great revival of Krabat I took a plane to London. I’m dancing Mary Skeaping’s Giselle here with English National Ballet. I had my first show on Wednesday and have another one on Sunday and after that I will already be back in Stuttgart for the premiere of SEDUCTION! :)
I am happy to say that my first show went very well and I’m enjoying the time here a lot with all the dancers and the staff of ENB and my great partner Cesar Corrales. Hope you’re all fine in Stuttgart, I can’t wait to see you soon!
Many kisses from London
In 1912 Vaslav Nijinsky created his scandalizing ballet L’Après-midi d’un faune. Almost 100 years later, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui choreographed his Faun, a pas de deux in which faun and nymph slowly encounter and sinuously entwine with each other … now who’s seducing whom??? We’re already looking forward to this comapny premiere on February 3 … here are some impressions from the rehearsal of Faun with Elisa Badenes and Pablo von Sternenfels:
Times flies … Today is already our last day in Shanghai – and for the first time it’s also a bit sunny! At the performance last night, the audience was able to enjoy some debuts: David Moore danced Romeo for the first time, Adhonay Soares da Silva had his debut as Benvolio and in the orchestra pit Alina Godunov had her debut as conductor. Here are the new photos … :)
