Noverre:Young Choreographers is an innovative project with a long tradition of producing world class choreographers. Since 1961 this unique platform encourages young choreographic talents to present brand new work on the stage of the Play House (“Schauspielhaus”) of the State Theater Stuttgart. First time and young choreographers from within the Stuttgart Ballet and from around the globe apply yearly to create a new work. In Stuttgart they are supported with studio time, costumes, lighting and, most importantly, the dancers of the Stuttgart Ballet who are happy to work with new choreographic talents and put their abilities at the service of fledgling artists. For some choreographers these evenings are just the beginning of a successful career and sometimes the works are taken into the repertoire of the Stuttgart Ballet or other companies. Last but not least: the highly educated and enthusiastic Stuttgart audience - which loves to get a glimpse of tomorrow’s choreographic stars – provides what every choreographer needs: a response to his or her work!
