7:30 pm – Ballett Basel Performance: “Dance Talks”
An evening of contemporary works by three renowned choreographers from the international dance world will be held in the Theater Basel located across the street from the Stadt-Casino.
Jean Philippe Dury, a former dancer at the Paris Opera, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens and the Spanish Compania Nacional de Danza, and current artistic director and founder of his company Elephant in the Black Box, will present CEL Black Days from 2012, which was awarded the first prize in 2013 at the Talent Festival in Madrid.
Ed Wubbe, former artistic director of the Dutch Scapino Ballet, presents Holland, a piece which references the dance aesthetics of his home and a tribute to its cultural diversity and history. Throughout the dance, Wubbe brings to mind images of Vermeer and Rembrandt.
The third piece of the evening is a new creation by Richard Wherlock, director and head choreographer of Ballett Basel. Straight to the Heart is danced to a musical potpourri of well-known rock and pop hits and is an abstract ensemble piece featuring atmospheric upheavals and contradictions on the body.
Tickets to the performance are being offered to IADMS Annual Meeting delegates at a reduced rate, with a limit of four (4) tickets per delegate. Availability is on a first-come, first-served basis, via the online meeting registration system. The deadline for reserving ticket(s) online is September 8, 2014.
Any tickets not picked up and paid for by 5:00 pm Friday, October 17, 2014 will be released for purchase by other delegates.
