Based in Dresden, the Semperoper Ballett has conquered the world with its now acclaimed blend of fierce ballet technique with both classical and contemporary repertoire. This triple bill of works by the visionary William Forsythe brandishes this identity.
Opening the programme is the fiendishly magnificent In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated.
Neue Suite is made up of a series of pas de deux, choreographed between 1987 and 1999, set to music by Bach, Berio and Handel.
Finally, lit by a single spotlight, 11 dancers cavort around a winding wooden wall in the energetic and expeditious Enemy in the Figure.
