Eric Gauthier asked star choreographers to create their very own version of Tchaikovsky‘s popular ballet Swan Lake for the dance company of the Theaterhaus Stuttgart. The result is three short performances that are as diverse as their choreographers.
Hofesh Shechter's Swan Cake brings a bright, but by no means light-hearted note to the program. The former music student has composed a soundtrack whose rhythms and choral loops you can't resist. He celebrates life in the movement of the group.
Untitled for 7 Dancers is Cayetano Soto's contribution. The dancers in black full-body suits are more snake-men than swan-girls as they glide across the floor. A clock on stage counts down the seconds in tenths, hundredths, thousandths. Soto succeeds in beautifully overlapping group motifs to a yearning electro sound.
We meet Marco Goecke's swans at the Russian lake Shara Nur, with music by Björk. The birds seem shy, nervous, and hectic in a way that is so specific to this choreographer.
Above all, this program allows both audience and artists to reconnect with something familiar while discovering something completely new.
