Demis Volpi

Resident Choreographer

VITA

Demis Volpi was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He began his ballet training at the age of four and studied with Andrea Candela, Mario Gallizi, Wilhelm Burmann and at the Escuela de Danza del Instituto Superior de Arte del Teatro Colón. Subsequently he attended the National Ballet School of Canada in Toronto and, from 2002 to 2004, the John Cranko Schule in Stuttgart. In 2004, he became an apprentice with the Stuttgart Ballet and joined  the Corps de ballet in 2005.

With his first choreographies for the Stuttgart based Noverre-Society's Young Choreographers evenings, Demis Volpi  made his mark as a choreographer. He created his first piece - on and on and on - in 2006 and was subsequently invited back to create works in 2007, 2008 and 2009. In 2010, Artistic Director Reid Anderson commissioned a world premiere from Volpi for the Stuttgart Ballet – Big Blur - followed by a highly acclaimed production of The Carneval of the Animals for the John Cranko School. In May 2012, The Carneval of the Animals was taken into the repertoire of Hamburg Ballet’s school.

For the 2011 Erik Bruhn Competition he created the Pas de deux Little Monsters for Stuttgart Ballet Dancers Elisa Badenes and Daniel Camargo. The piece won not only the Choreographic Prize; the dancersalso won the Audience Choice Award. In November 2011, Private Light, a commissioned work for American Ballet Theatre, received its world premiere. Also in 2011, he created a new work for Birgit Keil’s Badisches Staatsballett and in 2012 a new work for Ballett Augsburg.

Reid Anderson then commissioned a full length production from Volpi: Krabat based on the best- selling young adult novel by one of Germany’s most famous authors, Otfried Preussler. The world premiere took place on March 22nd, 2013 in the Opera House. Following the first performance, Reid Anderson appointed Volpi to Resident Choreographer of the Stuttgart Ballet, effective as of September 2013. For this work he was also awarded the “Deutscher Tanzpreis Future” in March 2014. In April 2014, Demis Volpi will create a new work for the Stuttgart Ballet set to a commissioned score by the American composer Michael Gordon.

Besides he was appointed Guest Choreographer at the National Ballet School Toronto where he received part of his ballet education.
