The new season of Staatsballett Berlin just started last Friday with the premiere of Celis/Eyal. The last names of the two choreographers contributing to this evening of contemporary dance form the title of a very diverse dance-performance.
The Belgian choreographer Stijn Celis created a piece called Your Passion is Pure Joy to Me about many little love stories. Playful and approachable this piece never loses the emotional connection with the audience. With this start, the work of Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar feels like an antagonism to the previous. It takes the viewer to an abstract world where intensity is marking every gesture and every decision. The two pieces are presented in this particular combination for the first time here in Berlin.
For all our readers we have the opportunity to give away 2×2 tickets for Friday, September 14th, 2018 at Komische Oper. Please leave a comment below until Wednesday to participate in the raffle. To get a taste of the show we have a bunch of amazing photos by Anna Agliardi to get you a taste.
