The Second Detail | LIB | Half Life

Choreography by William Forsythe. Music by Thom Willems

William Forsythe's The Second Detail was first created in 1991, had its premiere at the Staatsballett Berlin 2006 and now returns in a new version in the game plan. This fast-paced piece has long since entered the repertoire of many classical companies as one of Forsythe's earlier but most typical works.

The Second Detail is Forsythe's analytical play on the geometry of classical dance, pushing the dancers to the limits of their sense of balance and agility. In doing so, they are forced to deliberately put themselves into multiple spatial perspectives while dancing. Despite this intellectual, analytical approach, The Second Detail is directly sensual. And not least because of the music: Thom Willems developed the electronic sounds especially for this choreography.

N. N. [Creation] Dance piece by Alexander Ekman

Alexander Ekman is known for his fast-paced, humorous works, whose wit he effectively staged. It is important to him to find topics that a majority of his contemporaries can identify with, both entertaining and interviewing the audience. Since 2006 he is dedicated to choreography and is in demand worldwide. For the first time he will be guesting at the Staatstheater Berlin as a premiere for the first soloists of the ensemble.

Half Life Dance piece by Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar

Music by Ori Lichtik

Sharon Eyal is an Israeli choreographer and one of the protagonists of the contemporary dance scene these days. Uniquely shaped by the legendary Batsheva Dance Company, her creations challenge the physicality of the dancers to achieve an individual expression.

Together with Gai Behar, she leads the L-E-V Dance Company, which shows her creations at festivals around the world. Both developed Half Life 2017 for the Royal Swedish Ballet Stockholm. The pull of this work also results from the music that was created and developed by Ori Lichtik during the choreographic process.
