Guest performance of the Thuringian State Ballet
»Energy needs momentum.«
With the Impulse Ballet Evening, the Thuringia State Ballet will demonstrate its ability to perform and change through its collaboration with three internationally acclaimed choreographers.
Nanine Linning from Amsterdam choreographed ZERO 2013 as the debut piece of her ballet direction at the Theater Heidelberg and was celebrated by the audience and the trade press. Her choreographies refer back to basic human instincts, desires and emotions. In ZERO, the fact that there is a beginning inherent in every ending is seen in a completely new, dance-like way.
The British artist Ihsan Rustem worked as a dancer with great choreographers such as Wayne McGregor, Jiři Kylian or William Forsythe. Influenced by these experiences, he developed a very individual dance style. For Ravel's Boléro, Rustem created a choreography in 2016 that demands athleticism, agility and a good portion of humour from the dancers.
Nils Christe, whose choreographies are danced by more than 70 companies worldwide, inspires with elegance and stylish neoclassical lines. His version of Le Sacre du Printemps was last performed in Gera and Altenburg. Now he returns to our house with the successful piece SYNC. To the music of Ludovico Einaudi, the Thuringian State Ballet shows neoclassicism in its brilliance - literally taken to the extreme. Synchronicity, technical class and energy become impressively visible. With virtuosity, Nils Christe creates a fast-paced play of constantly changing group structures, which he juxtaposes with delicate and intense pas de deux and solos.
