WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Based in Dresden, the Semperoper Ballett is internationally renowned for its distinguished ballet technique with both classical and contemporary repertoire.
This triple bill of works by the visionary William Forsythe compliments the dancer' technical expertise and physical prowess. Opening the programme is the groundbreaking In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated, a work that famously changed ballet forever with its deconstruction of the classical ballet technique. Neue Suite is made up of a series of pas de deux, choreographed between 1987 and 1999, set to music by Bach, Berio and Handel. Finally, lit by a single spotlight, 11 dancers cavort around a winding wooden wall in the energetic and expeditious Enemy in the Figure.
