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

Dear Stuttgarters,

I am here in Naples since last Wednesday, under the beautiful Italian sun and enjoying the great food as well. But – of course, I have come here to work :)

I am here at the wonderful Teatro di San Carlo where we have been rehearsing for the world premiere of Gianluca Schiavoni’s Alice in Wonderland. I danced the premiere last night and I am also looking forward to my second show tomorrow evening!

I had a great time here! The other dancers were so welcoming and warm that it felt like being with a family :) It really was like an “adventure in wonderland”.

But I am also looking forward to see you all again soon!

Many kisses from Italy,

Yours

Alicia

EMAIL FROM … LONDON (ROBERT ROBINSON)

Hello from London!

I am just about to have my rehearsal at the London Palladium for tomorrow’s show.

I’m very excited to be performing here for Dame Vera Lynn’s 100th birthday, with an amazing line up and have already had the opportunity to meet some old friends. I will be  dancing a new piece by Marco Goecke specially created for the event.

It’s always a strange feeling to come back to England as I feel I’m entering as a foreigner. The busy life style and rush I get from this city is great. It’s a very thought provoking place for me, but I often find it hard to think with so much going on. It’s clear to see how comfortable the living and working situation in Stuttgart really is.

I wish everyone a lovely weekend back in Stuttgart!

Hello everybody!

I’m writing to you from New York, where I’m creating a new piece for the New York Choreographic Institute. It’s already been a week of creation and of course a lot of inspiration from my six fabulous dancers of the New York City Ballet!

I’m also very happy to collaborate with Nicky Sohn, graduate of the Julliard School, who composed the beautiful music I’m using for my piece, and it will also be played live in the performances.

The premiere will be next Friday, March 17th with a double show and I’m very excited to see the final result of the piece!

I’ll be back right in time in Stuttgart for the premiere of the mixed repertory evening NIGHT PIECES on March 24th, where I will be dancing in Edward Clug’s Ssss…

I hope you’re all well and I send you a lot of love from the big apple!

Fabio
