The Staatstheater Nürnberg Ballet will celebrate its 15th season in 2022/23, under my artistic direction. This marks an important milestone: We have achieved a lot and developed into a high-profile representative of contemporary dance in Europe. No reason to dwell on it. Curiosity and the pursuit of artistic perfection continue to drive us: I have the privilege of exploring further new territory together with my ensemble and you, our audience, and at the same time to look a little nostalgically into the past.

With our anniversary highlight "Boîte-en-valise" we show excerpts from signature pieces by our most influential guest choreographers. The miniatures are complemented by a world première from my own hand, which connects our joint artistic work.

Talking about nostalgia: The revival of the production "Stravinsky" is tantamount to a première for me, as only a few performances could be shown so far due to the pandemic. The orchestral ballet "Goldberg" is also an extremely personal choreography, an experiment that deals with the body as an instrument and in which the dancers have to return to the original.

Hofesh Shechter, one of the unquestionably most original choreographers of our time, also reflects on the origins of dance time and again. His hit play "tHE bAD" comes to the stage in a version tailor-made for our ensemble. But dance, of course, does not only revolve around itself. Current topics are always taken up by me. My choreography "Anthem" is a reflection on the ideal of humanity, which is not having a particularly easy time at the moment. But it is all the more important to bring the virulent issues of our time to the surface.
