À Jour 2019 is getting devilishly good – three works that examine dance, death and ecstasy from different perspectives. Andrey Kaydanovskiy, who already caused a furore in Munich in 2017 at the first edition of the Young Choreographers with his piece, Discovery, and thrilled audiences with his fresh and modern narrative, has now developed an idea for this summer, which he’s been carrying around with him for some time now – the realisation of a criminal ballet, based on the mysterious murder stories surrounding the notorious Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles. The individual stories are told full of suspense, highly complex and parallel with one another; time is travelled, the lobby is transformed into a hotel room in seconds and we are lead through the protagonists’ lives and deaths. Hold your breath – but not for too long!
Edwaard Liang’s choreography promises to be totally different. The choreographer and artistic director of the BalletMet in Ohio first danced at the New York City Ballet and the Nederlands Dans Theatre, and now effectively employs the experiences he gathered as first soloist in his choreographic work. His style is largely neoclassical and characterised by a sensitive inwardness. For the Bayerisches Staatsballett he will choreograph a world premiere for the second movement of Franz Schubert’s string quartet, Der Tod und das Mädchen, and therewith follows the trail of a centuries-old theme. 
With Yuka Oishi it gets transcendental. For her version of Stravinsky’s, Le sacre du printemps, she choreographed a solo entitled, Sacré, which was performed as a world premiere homage in 2018 to the world-renowned Vaslav Nijinsky, and will now be seen as part of À Jour. She choreographed the work especially for star dancer Sergei Polunin, who will be dancing the role in Munich as well. With profound humanity, Yuka Oishi captures the musical radicality that is intensified even more by the content level of a dance-ecstatic opera – and therewith gifts us a little mollification of the madness!

Biographies

Choreographer

Andrey Kaydanovskiy was born in Moscow (Russia). After his education in Moscow, Stuttgart (Germany) and Vienna (Austria) he joined the ballett of the Vienna State Opera. His extensive repertoire includes various solo roles in classical and contemporary pieces. He has worked with numerous renowned choreographers. In 2009 he presented his first own choreography and during the next years several others followed. In April 2013 his first work for the Vienna State Ballet was Zeitverschwendung (Waste of Time). In October 2013 the first performance of The Ugly Duckling (ballet in one act) at the Volksoper Wien took place. Other projects followed: he was in charge of the complete opening of the "Life Ball 2014", involving artists from all genres and choreographed a piece for 5 dancers to Mozart's Apollo et Hyacinthus.

His piece Love Song, choreographed for the event "Young Choreographers ’14" at the Odeon Theater in Vienna was also presented in Slovakia, Germany and was staged for the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, Russia. On February 27, 2016 his piece Tea or Coffee successfully premiered at the Stanislavsky Theatre in Moscow and led to a closer collaboration with the theatre where he later created Pajama Party, sharing the evening with works of Balanchine and Kylián, and Birthday Waltz for the 100-Year-Anniversary of the theatre.

He created two works for Bundesjugendballett (Hamburg), Igor Stravinsky´s Firebird for the Vienna State Ballett, Perfect Example for the Czech National Ballet and Solo for Sergei Polunin at the Origen Festival in Switzerland. Fable, which premiered in March 2018 at Taganka Theatre in Moscow, was his first full-length piece as stage director and choreographer for actors in a Drama Theatre. For the TV broadcast of the New Years Concert 2019 of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, which was broadcast in almost 100 countries worldwide, he choreographed Künstlerleben Waltz and Pazman-Csárdás by Johann Strauss II with the Vienna State Ballet. 

He received the Special Prize as "Best Dance Theatre Performer and Choreographer" at the International Dance Festival TANZOLYMP in Berlin, is awarded with the "German Dance Award 2016" in the category "future" and was nominated for two categories for "The Golden Mask" in Russia.

His piece Discovery premiered in July 2017 in Munich. The new creation Cecil Hotel will premiere on 28 June 2019 with À Jour - Contemporary Choreographies
