PARADIGMA

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.
