World Ballet Day 2020: PAS DE QUATRE & LE CORSAIRE

Despite the current situation, our company was fortunate enough to be able to stage a variety of productions before lockdown will put a stop to it once again. This we wanted to share with all of you. On World Ballet Day 2020, we therefore presented an excerpt from our gala programme FROM BERLIN WITH LOVE II:

The Grand Pas de Deux from LE CORSAIRE with Iana Salenko and Daniil Simkin as well as PAS DE QUATRE by Anton Dolin with Yolanda Correa, Evelina Godunova, Sarah Hees-Hochster and Aya Okumura.

DIORAMA | Daniil Simkin & Maria Kochetkova | Kronos Quartet

We're proud to present DIORAMA, a dance film conceived and created during lockdown by artists from across the globe, from Denmark via the United States all the way to Berlin.

Through the medium of film, dance and music, DIORAMA creatively tackles the emotional consequences all of us are confronted with in 2020. Featuring our Principal Dancer Daniil Simkin, last season's Principal Guest Maria Kochetkova and music by the Kronos Quartet, DIORAMA is a labour of love, digitally bridging the distance that has become an integral part of all our daily lives.

SUNNY in the Park

(c) Pippa Samaya

At the end of August, our dancers might be back on stage, however, it'll still take some time until our entire ensemble will be able to share the same space. So, we decided to take Emanuel Gat's SUNNY with music by Awir Leon and the entire cast to the park, keeping the necessary distance, of course - SUNNY in the Park!

DistANCE

Last year, the dance pedagogues of Tanz ist KLASSE! went to four Berlin-based schools to talk about »Grenzen«, which translates to »limits« but also implies »borders«, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Wall.

The participating children not only choreographed their own dances but also engaged in the medium of film. The outcome is the 60-minute dance film DistANCE documenting the children's dances and in doing so becoming a form of dance itself.
