Dear colleagues, dear friends,
we would like to invite you to the The Göteborg Ballet`s world première Leinonen/Franzén/Zappalà, 14th October! The season 2011/2012 starts off with a highly physical triple bill which shows the broad creative scope of a big creative team and 30 dancers involved in the project.
The Göteborg Ballet is a contemporary repertory company based in the Gothenburg Opera, a chameleon which constantly throws itself into new works. This highly productive dance group is one of the most attractive companies in Europe, directed by Adolphe Binder, formerly based in Berlin.
Gothenburg, Sweden´s second-largest city with almost one million inhabitants in the metropolitan area, is the homebase of the largest seaport of the nordic countries, two universities and a very rich and manifold cultural life - out of which The Göteborg Ballet stands out.
Gothenburg has two international airports and you have no excuse to miss out on this. Welcome!
Leinonen/Franzén/Zappalà - World premiere October 14, 2011
Further performances: October 16, 18, 20, 21, 23, 26, 27
North meets south meets The Göteborg Ballet. A dance production with Italian irony, Swedish contrasting and a Finnish sense for details.
Three world premieres created especially for The Göteborg Ballet: Transient Horizon by Susanna Leinonen (Finland), Fading by Helena Franzén (Sweden), Sud-virus by Roberto Zappalà (Italy).
Original music by Kasperi Laine, Jukka Rintamäki and Puccio Castrogiovanni.
Three different styles and energies sparked of when the choreographers and composers from diverse cultural backgrounds met the creativity of The Göteborg Ballet ensemble. For the first dance premiere of the season one Sicilian and two Scandinavian choreographers reflected on the individual and the community and the relations they can create in plurality. A collaboration with three composers to create a program full of movement, energy and music composed especially for this production.
Leinonen/Franzén/Zappalà is a touring production and will visit Dansens Hus in Stockholm end of April 2012, for those who cannot make it to Gothenburg in October.
