The joy of being there

We are now experiencing the pure joy of being there: Our main source of energy - direct contact with one another and our personal dialogue with you, our audience – is bubbling up again! Flushed with the feeling that it’s “our very first time doing it”, we’re kicking off our most ambitious program yet. We have four premieres covering a total of five new creations. And six world-famous choreographers will be giving guest performances.

“Ship of Fools”, our orchestral ballet in cooperation with star soloist Diana Vishneva and the Context Festival, provides the prelude and exclamation mark for this season – a challenging production that explores a universal human theme - the search for a better world - in two independent yet linked choreographies. In my new creation “Goldberg”, a study of dreams, Bach’s musical opus magnum forms the musical backdrop alongside a new composition by Owen Belton. After a pandemic-related postponement, the long-awaited master choreographers Ohad Naharin and Edward Clug are now enriching our repertoire, with my choreography “Submerge” rounding off the three-part evening. For the finale, Bryan Arias and Joseph Hernandez, two highly regarded voices of their generation, present new, tailor-made creations in the “Made For Us” series.

To our cherished audiences: We await you with warm hearts and open arms!
