Choreographies by Alexander Ekman and Sharon Eyal

Ab 12 Jahren


Piece by Alexander Ekman

Alexander Ekman is known for his fast-paced timing, witty humor and clever staging. He aims at creating works which the majority can connect to, exploring topics everybody can relate to, which both entertain and question the audience. Since 2006, he has devoted his time to creating choreographies all across the globe. For the first time he is working with the Staatsballett Berlin, creating a new work for the company’s female Principal Dancers and a male soloist. Having been fascinated by the creations of hair artist Charlie Le Mindu, especially his Chewbacca costumes which completely wrap their wearers in long hair, Alexander Ekman is working with him for the first time. His piece LIB (referring to ›liberation‹) would not be a work by Alexander Ekman, if it did not have a humorous and bizarre note.


Dance work by Sharon Eyal
Music by Ori Lichtik

Sharon Eyal’s choreographies can also be described as vibrant experiments on the border between precision and supposed excess. Her works seem to strike a nerve with audiences and dancers. The uncompromising Israeli choreographer has long since found a very personal, unmistakable artistic signature. Not only was she recently commissioned by Dior to contribute to one of the recent fashion shows, but is increasingly conquering European dance stages. In her first new creation in Berlin, she will now explore the emotional authenticity with the dancers of Staatsballett Berlin necessary for the interpretation of her pieces.

During the performance strong sudden sound effects are triggered that might go beyond the usual experience.
