Establishing itself as one of the most popular programs of the season, CREATIONS goes into its fifth iteration, this time featuring three female choreographers from different countries and backgrounds: Vittoria Girelli, Samantha Lynch and Morgann Runacre-Temple.

Italian-born Vittoria Girelli, trained at the La Scala and English National Ballet schools, is a Demi-Soloist with the Stuttgart Ballet. Her first three works for the company – Chrysalis in 2020, Self-Deceit in 2022 and In Esisto in 2023 displayed an astonishingly mature command of a unique, hypnotic choreographic vocabulary resulting in original pas de deuxs and mesmerizing group formations. Greatly inspired by the visual arts – particularly of the 20th century - 25-year old Girelli seems to capture the Zeitgeist of her generation in terms of mood and aesthetics.

Australian-born Samantha Lynch is a Principal Dancer of the Norwegian Ballet where she initiated and runs the dancer’s choreography workshop NNB RAW. Together with Douwe Dekkers, she has created several works, including for: jake, which was selected for the International Draft Works series of the Royal Ballet in London. She made her debut on the main stage in Oslo with A Boléro in the spring of 2021. This will be her first work for a German company.

Born in England, Morgann Runacre-Temple has created an extensive body of works for, among others, Northern Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Scottish Ballet, English National Ballet, Ballet Central – and was Resident Choreographer of Ballet Ireland from 2009 to 2015. Her mostly narrative, at times dystopian works often integrate the skillful use of video and/or live camera, resulting in an entirely new experience for dance audiences. This is her second visit to the Swabian capital: in 2019 she created a work for the Noverre: Young Choreographers.
