Two important representatives of the “new generation” will again be presenting cutting-edge choreographies created specially for the Nuremberg Ballet. Joseph Hernandez’s choreographies – for Semperoper Dresden Ballett and Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, among others – are often inspired by literature. In his new creation “Nighttime Showtime”, based on Italo Calvino’s 1979 meta-novel “If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller”, the choreographer explores the relationship between a given real event and the comments prompted by it in the context of modern Internet culture. Bryan Arias, who was awarded the FAUST Prize in 2020, worked as a dancer in leading companies such as the Nederlands Dans Theater and Crystal Pite’s “Kidd Pivot”. He now works for Ballett Basel, Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden, NDT and the Juillard School in New York, among others. With his signature playfulness and sensitivity, Arias portrays the mystery of chance and its significance for our existence in his new creation, “The Last Coincidence”.

Press reviews
Nürnberger Nachrichten

„Mit „Made for us III“ betritt das Nürnberger Ensemble neues Terrain – und begeistert restlos.“

„Und als hätte die Nürnberger Compagnie nur darauf gewartet, meisterte sie die Herausforderung bravourös, mit allergrößter Spiel- und Tanzlust, die das Publikum am Ende zu begeistertem Applaus hinreißt.“

„Ein Käfig voller Narren, aber auf höchstem tänzerischen Niveau samt fulminanten Streetdance-Einlagen und witzig persiflierenden Ballerina-Solos.“

Regina Urban, Nürnberger Nachrichten
