A dream evening for lovers of modern dance with no less than six of the world’s leading choreographers, each exploring in their own way the human soul in all its richness and diversity of language. The doyen Mats Ek will open the evening with an extract from his ballet Juliet and Romeo, a subtle work that plays on all registers of emotion. Canadian choreographer Emma Portner, spotted for her successful collaborations with Apple, Netflix, the Guggenheim Museum and several American music stars will follow with her ballet Islands. Berlin-based Sasha Waltz will explore the intimacy of body-to-body contact and the versatility of moods to the sublime music of Schubert. Jirí Kylián will continue to question this theme of the human soul through his piece 14’20” while Ohad Naharin will deliver his powerful and committed version of Ravel’s Bolero in an arrangement by electronic music composer Isao Tomita. Finally, the icing on the cake is a new creation by the Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite, who has developed over 50 works for companies such as The Royal Ballet, The Paris Opera Ballet, Nederlands Dans Theater I, Ballett Frankfurt, and her own dance company, Kidd Pivot. Six strong contemporary dance figures exploring a spectrum of feelings for a unique evening.

«Communication is a word defining a growing range of meanings. Today often connected to new medias as f i internet. But there is a much older form for interaction; stage-art. Ancient, some would say old-fashioned, but still the most direct way of sharing the living moment with an audience. In doing so this program wants to perform not only 6 pas-de-deuxes by 6 choreographers, but also emphasise the dialogue within the DIALOGUES» MATS EK
