Dancing Against the End of the World


photo: Paulio Sovari

Every form of artistic expression is capable of doing good in the world. Even ballet dance that was once created to entertain the kings and queens of this world with the movements that seemed almost superhuman at the time can become a tool of change. A change of society that needs to start through the arts from the stages of theaters, operas, and ballet houses. Because there it starts a conversation that is not motivated by politics but by an emotional perspective on our human life and society.

I’m quite excited that Nacho Duato, the current artistic director of Staatsballett Berlin, is creating another piece that is dedicated to a social topic. In his upcoming premiere called Erde he is creating a vision of our world under the current ecological circumstances of climate change. For this unique premiere he collaborated with locals from the Berlin electronic music scene like Pedro Alcalde, Sergio Caballero and Richie Hawtin just to name a few.

On the same night, there will be another premiere of this double bill evening. The British-Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter has now given one of his works to the repertoire of the Staatsballett Berlin called “The Art of Not Looking Back”. Shechter is internationally acclaimed and well known for his controversial pieces.

For this intense and unique evening of contemporary ballet we are giving away 2×2 tickets for Friday the 21.4.2017. To participate please leave a comment below until Thursday at noon using a valid eMail in the form. More amazing photos from the rehearsal by Paulio Sovari below.

    Dancing is my passion. I can not describe with words how good and peaceful and free it makes me feel.I feel its such an intense way of expressing my emotions and feelings and freeing myself. And watching others dance just makes me feel so unbelievable happy and excited cause I can feel how good it makes them feel to express themselves and be one with their physical body. I love it so much! And I have never been to the Staatsballet before! And the whole topic about the end of the world it sounds like something I can really adjust with!
    I would go there with my sister cause she just finished her studies and she would love it and she is just the kindest person ever so she deserves a surprise like that so much! <3
