Choreography Uwe Scholz
Felix Mendelssohn Music
To see a ballet by Uwe Scholz always has something touching. This choreographer of early genius, who shaped the Leipzig Opera from 1991 until his sudden death in 2004, has no equal to infuse his dance with the traits of his endearing personality. Practicing piano, guitar, violin and singing, Uwe Scholz has created a work that explores in detail the relationship to music. Through her, the choreographer gives us access through the movement to the most subtle and intimate nuances of the octet in E flat major for strings of Mendelssohn.
Robert North choreography
Bob Downes and Batucada Music
With the facetious and virile Troy Game, spectators will appreciate the dancers' technique as well as Robert North's sense of humor. The choreographer takes us into a simulacrum of combat where warriors compete with ardor and virtuosity against a background of Brazilian Batucada to prove their bravery. But Troy Game is more than a nod to masculine values that make your torso bend. The piece also shows the fragility of these men who prefer to dance and play rather than fight. A virtuoso show and a riot of energy from the dancers!
Last four Lieder
Choreography Rudi van Gdansk
Richard Strauss Music
Considered one of the major ballets of the Dutch dance of the Seventies, Four last lieder of Rudi van Dantzig poses on the death a calm look. Four couples follow the melody of one of Richard Strauss's latest works. Octogenarian when composing these ultimate Lieder, this one expresses all in sobriety the farewell to the life and the end of the romantic music. Moved by this swan song, Rudi van Dantzig has created a sensual and twilight ballet that expresses the same serenity through a timeless classical dance
