Staatsballett Berlin will cooperate with Volksbühne

Berlin, 23 May 2019 --- In the upcoming season, Staatsballett Berlin will for the first time cooperate with Volksbühne Berlin for a total of six performances.

The premiere for the triple bill »Ekman | Eyal | Gat« was scheduled for 8 December 2019. Staatsballett Berlin now announces that this evening will show two world premieres by Alexander Ekman and Sharon Eyal titled »Ekman | Eyal«. The originally planned third part – »Sunny« by Israeli choreographer Emanuel Gat – will now be shown as a separate production at Volksbühne Berlin on six dates in December 2019 and January 2020. The reason for this is the wish to give the individual choreographies more rehearsal time.

»We are committed to bringing the Staatsballett repertory to a wide and diverse audience. We are therefore very proud, grateful and happy that giving more artistic freedom to these three individual choreographies led to a collaboration with Volksbühne Berlin. With its unique and loyal audience, we believe that it will be a perfect match for Staatsballett Berlin« say Artistic Directors Sasha Waltz and Johannes Öhman.

The decision entails further minor changes to the program affecting other performances. Details can be found on the website of Staatsballett and in the new preview booklet for the 2019/2020 season.
Presales for the 2019/2020 season will start on 4 June 2019 for all productions except »Sunny«. Tickets will then be available online and at the box offices of Deutsche Oper Berlin, Komische Oper Berlin and Staatsoper Unter den Linden. The presale for »Sunny« by Emanuel Gat will be offered exclusively by the ticket service of Volksbühne Berlin and starts 1 November 2019.
