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! // FAUN

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 :)

Pure Seduction! // FAUN

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:

EMAIL FROM … PARIS (FRIEDEMANN VOGEL)

Dear Friends,

 

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,

 

Friedemann
