Workshop «Pas de deux»

Workshop series for young adults 16 years and older

On the history of dancing in pairs
May to June 2021

Most dance pieces feature prominent choreographed encounter between two people. Whether in a narrative ballet, which very often deal with relationships (many of them romantic), or in an abstract ballet, relationships between two figures or bodies are often central elements of the choreography. In this workshop series, we will deal with the history of the pas de deux, and will try out different forms of danced dialogues, including partnering techniques and simple lifts. Choreographer Jiri Kylian has created countless unique pas de deux dances, which is why we will use the revival of the ballet Bella Figura to take a closer look at his pieces from this perspective. To do so, we will visit a rehearsal of the Ballett Zürich, meet dances, and attend a performance of Bella Figura together.
