BALLET FESTIVAL WEEK FROM 23 TO 31 MAY 2020
Premiere at the Ballet Festival Week 2020
The triple bill Ratmansky / Dawson / Eyal opens the Ballet Festival Week 2020. The evening consists of two premieres: Alexei Ratmansky's Pictures at an Exhibition and Sharon Eyal's Bedroom Folk will be performed for the first time at Bayerisches Staatsballett. The British choreographer David Dawson creates in spring 2020 the new choreography Affairs of the Heart for the ensemble.
Alexey Ratmansky’s Pictures at an Exhibition was created for the New York City Ballet in 2014 to Modest Mussorgsky’s composition. The music intertwines with the constantly changing projections of Wassily Kandinsky’s Colour Study, Squares with Concentric Circles, which itself served as an inspiration to costume designer Adeline André. The three elements create an organically accomplished piece, contributing to the wholeness of the theme.
David Dawson is creating a new choreography together with our company. For his work he has chosen Marjan Mozetich’s Affairs of the Heart concerto for violin and strings, a dramatically charged composition. Dawson is famously reinventing and pushing the boundaries of classical ballet and is one of the most sought after contemporary choreographers.
Sharon Eyal created her work Bedroom Folk with the Nederlands Dans Theater 1 in 2015. Ori Lichtik’s music is rich on looping elements, constantly bringing the dancers back to the beginning of their dance sequences. Without disturbing the dance formation, Eyal’s choreography feeds upon the power of the group. Initially Bedroom Folk was created for 8 dancers, but the choreographer will revise her work for a larger group for the Bayerisches Staatsballett.
