Workshop «Pas de deux»

Workshop series for young adults 16 years and older

About the history of dancing in pairs
May to June 2021

The choreographed encounter of two people has a prominent place in most dance works. Be it in story ballets, which very often deal with (love) relationships, but also in abstract works, relationships of two figures or bodies are often central elements of choreography.

In this workshop series we will deal with the history of the pas de deux and try out different forms of dance dialogues, partnering techniques and simple lifting figures. The choreographer William Forsythe has created countless unique pas de deux, so we will take the resumption of the Forsythe Ballet Evening as an opportunity to take a closer look at his pieces from this perspective. For this purpose we will visit a rehearsal of the Zurich Ballet, meet dancers, and of course the joint visit of the Forsythe Ballet Evening is also part of this series.
