Four exciting choreographies about women and men, order and spontaneity.
Choreography: Nacho Duato, Jiří Kylián, Lukáš Timulák
Music: Johann Sebastian Bach, Steve Reich and others
World choreography in the Mahen Theatre.
Ballet NdB continues to introduce world choreographic personalities to its repertoire in another premiere contemporary evening. Following the first ever showing of works by George Balanchine and Jiří Kylián, we bring to our scene another exceptional international choreographic personality – Nacho Duato. His work, Gnawa, is an impressive show with music typical of the North African region and the adjoining Mediterranean. Gnawa is full of dancing and musical power, sensuous elegance, the organic rhythm of the Mediterranean and plastic and dynamic choreography by Nacho Duato.
The success of Petite Mort guaranteed Ballet NdB a chance to perform other choreographies by the genius Jiří Kylián. During this evening, we shall introduce to you two extraordinary choreographies, Falling Angels and Sarabande. Male and female elements are given space for realization in the masterful compositions of each title. Falling Angels shows female dancers’ ambition for perfection and their subjection to the female psyche in different life situations. On the other hand, Sarabande is a purely male affair. The choreographer, in some respects chauvinistically, views male aggression, vulnerable sensitivity and civility, exploring their sexuality, feelings of worthlessness and importance... and stupidity. This evening will also include one original choreography created specifically for our group. Its author is Lukáš Timulák, who worked with us on the successful ballet evening Petite Mort.
