Tonight’s the night! We hope you’ ll enjoy the premiere of our mixed repertory evening SEDUCTION!
With Katarzyna Kozielska’s Dark Glow …
… Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Faun …
… Marco Goecke’s Le Spectre de la Rose …
… und Maurice Béjart’s Bolero!
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:
at the moment I am in Paris where I have been working in the hallowed studios of the Paris Opera with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, who has created a pas de deux for the Etoile Marie-Agnès Gillot and myself based on Stravinsky’s Firebrid. It is totally inspiring! Today we move to the Fondation Louis Vuitton for our first rehearsal on stage. It will be exciting and interesting to see how dance incorporates itself into this spectacular museum. The premiere is tomorrow night. For everyone who wants to see it, arte will live stream the performance on Sunday, October 30th at 8:30 pm: http://concert.arte.tv/fr/quatre-ballets-russes-revisites-par-sidi-larbi-cherkaoui-et-lil-buck-la-fondation-louis-vuitton
Au revoir et à bientôt,
