Paradigma includes three choreographies by Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar (Bedroom Folk), Russell Maliphant (Broken Fall), and Liam Scarlett (With a Chance of Rain). Each piece presented by the Bayerisches Staatsballett is a representation of current developments in the art of dance.  Just as every paradigm has an inherent structure, the evening is characterized also by the powers which contradict the dominant structure and thereby gain their creative potential. All three choreographies explicitly display these impulses by either following the given structure or by demonstrating a counterpoint and then setting a separate paradigm. In this exciting game of three choreographic handwritings, the ballet evening gains momentum.

 

Broken Fall is an exciting choreography for two male dancers and one female dancer, which was created by the British choreographer Russel Maliphant in 2003. Broken Fall addresses the human fear of falling in a permanently tense interaction. The work has last been staged in Munich in 2012 and will now be newly rehearsed.

The Israeli Sharon Eyal created Bedroom Folk together with Gai Behar in 2015 for the Nederlands Dans Theater 1. The choreography, which caused storms of enthusiasm at the premiere, is characterised by an ecstatic character. The beginning is marked by a strict rhythm and a close group formation. Over time, the strict arrangement dissolves and reveals a whole range of individual movement patterns. A pulse is continuously given by the electronic music, which at the same time forms a powerful centre of energy, but also forces the dancers to move forward.

With a Chance of Rain was created in 2014 for eight dancers of the American Ballet Theatre on piano preludes by Sergei Rachmaninow. These pieces are characterised by a late-Romantic tonal language in which the dramatic, the lyrical, the melancholy and the tragic are mixed. In the performance Dmitry Mayboroda takes on the pianistically extremely demanding works. The choreography of Liam Scarlett takes Rachmaninow's compositions as its starting point and develops an artistic response to the progressions and harmonies in piano music. A complex and fascinating web of relationship structures is created on stage. This reflects both the choreographer's intensive examination of the preludes created at the beginning of the 20th century and Liam Scarlett's narrative talent, which gives the abstract ballet a very personal touch.

Biographies

Choreographer

Sharon Eyal was born in Jerusalem in 1971 and danced with the Batsheva Dance Company between 1990 and 2008 – one of the most influential contemporary companies in the world. It was there that she gained her first experiences  as a coreographer. Between 2003 and 2004 she worked as the company's Associate Artistic Director and from 2005 until 2012 its house coreographer. In 2019, she returned to this place that had so greatly influenced her, to work on the piece The Look.

2009, Eyal started creating for other dance companies  worldwide: Killer Pig (2009) and Corps de Walk (2011) for the Norwegian dance company Carte Blanche, Too Beaucoup (2011) for Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and Plafona (2012) for Tanzcompagnie Oldenburg.

From 2005 on, she has been working with Gai Behar, their first joint production being Bertolina for the Batsheva Dance Company. Gai Behar functioned as a curator for multimedia art events and organised countless events for the nightlife scene in Tel Aviv. Together with him, Eyal founded the dance company L-E-V, whose productions were staged at the most renowned theatres and every important festival worldwide. In 2019, the production of L-E-V called Love Chapter 3: The Brutal Journey of the Heart premiered at the RuhrTriennale in Bochum. As a guest choreographer, Sharon Eyal worked for the Royal Swedish Ballet, the Staatsballett Berlin, the Norwegian company Carte Blanche and the Nederlands Dans Theater, for which she has already created four works. Bedroom Folk was also created there in 2015, it is the first piece by Sharon Eyal, which the Bayerisches Staatsballett presents.
