Choreographies from Isolation
The Staatsballett Berlin's first new post-lockdown stage production will be created by choreographers from the ensemble: during times of self-isolation, dancers from the Staatsballett Berlin created choreographies for themselves and/or co-dancers residing in the same household. Under the title »LAB_WORKS COVID_19«, these creations will be performed live on stage at the earliest possible performance date with regulations suggested by the Robert-Koch-Institut not only applying in the auditorium but on stage as well. All nine world premieres, spanning from solos to pas de deux to a creation with six dancers whose physical distance is integral to the choreography, feature a wide spectrum of dance languages.
Capturing the creation process on film, from initial brainstorm at home to rehearsals in the studio and on stage, is part of the concept to unveil the dance profession's emotional challenges during this pandemic to the audience.
