For the last 60 years, the Stuttgart Ballet has delighted its audiences with new works. Almost 400 world premieres and over 200 company premieres have been presented since 1961, a record only few other companies can boast. The quadruple bill NEW / WORKS unites four choreographers who perfectly exemplify the innovative impetus of the Stuttgart Ballet.

Christian Spuck and Marco Goecke were both resident choreographers of the Stuttgart Ballet, from 2001 – 2011 and 2005 – 2018 respectively. As such they defined the contemporary profile of the company for almost two decades. Spuck, currently Artistic Director of the Zurich Ballet, has made a name for himself with his dramaturgically intelligent, highly musical and extremely diverse “Gesamtkunstwerke”. Goecke, currently director of the Ballet of the State Theater of Hannover, is known throughout Europe for his highly idiosyncratic, inimitable and groundbreaking dance style. Both of these highly individual dance makers return to their artistic roots, commissioned by Artistic Director Tamas Detrich to create new works for the Stuttgart Ballet’s 60th anniversary season.

A third world premiere will be created by Edward Clug. Clug’s highly aesthetic movement vocabulary, as well as the unforgettable atmosphere and poetic delicacy of his works has made him one of Europe’s most sought-after choreographers. His previous collaborations with the Stuttgart Ballet have bestowed upon the company some of the most unique works of the last decade.

The evening will close with the German premiere of William Forsythe’s Blake Works. Forsythe is himself a former resident choreographer of the Stuttgart Ballet, a dance genius and rebel whose revolutionary work changed the face of 20th century ballet. In 2016, he created a new work to the bluesy-jazzy music of singer-songwriter James Blake. As if he had distilled his vast knowledge of ballet into 30 breath-taking minutes, Blake Works encompasses all the facets which make Forsythe one of the most revered choreographers in the world today. The piece is a love-letter to classical ballet as only William Forsythe can write it: cool, nonchalant, beautiful and brilliant. Needless to say, the dancers of the Stuttgart Ballet cannot wait to dance this work as well as to work with Spuck, Goecke and Clug again.

The Livestream is presented by Porsche.
